Memorandum submitted to the CMD BSNL – BSNLCCWF Discussed the matter with CLC New Delhi on 17th July.

We have successfully conducted the Dharna programme on 16th July, 2019 at Corporate Office as well as throughout the country. After the Dharna programme we had submitted the memorandum to the CMD and urged upon him for the payment of pending wages of the contract labourers. It is learnt that the department is trying to clear a portion of pending wages of the contract workers by taking bank loan at the end of this month.

On 17th July, 2019 Secretary General, CCWF, Com. Animesh Mitra, met Chief Labour Commissioner, Sri Rajen Varma and apprised him of the latest position about the non-payment of the wages to the contract workers for 6 months and retrenchment of these labourers and as a whole the situation persisting in BSNL. A memorandum was also submitted to him on this day. He said that as per the notice served to BSNL in regard to the strike on December, 2017 the Astt. labour Commissioner, New Delhi had intervened and series of discussions took place with the officers of BSNL. But it is unfortunate that the department has ignored to the directives of the Labour Commissioner. Under this circumstance the Secretary General asked the favour of the Chief Labour Commissioner for intervening on the issue. The Hon’ble CLC assured the leadership to do the needful (BSNLCCWF website)
