Agitated workers organised dharna programme at Amritsar in Punjub circle.
Deepavali is a festival of light. But it has been complained that the contract workers are yet to get their wages since months together in so many circles in BSNL for which they are in dark position in festive season. The contract workers in Amritsar SSA reacted on the issue and organised a dharna programme on 6th November, 2018 at GMT office. BSNLCCWF and BSNLEU organised the massive demonstration before GMT Office. As a result the administration intervened on the issue and arranged a tripartite meeting on 12th November, 2018. It was also ordered the contractors to make the adhoc payment of Rs.5,000/- to the workers before Deepavali. BSNLCCWF CHQ conveys red salute to the leadership and members to conduct the right struggle in right time.
