BSNL Employees Union has called for organising dharnas on 26th July 2020 on the major demands of the employees including, immediate allotment of 4G Spectrum, implementation of assured Revival package, payment of wages to contract labour and no retrenchment of contract labour etc. The DOT and BSNL management have not implemented the assurances to BSNL, but is favouring the private companies. Contract workers are being retrenched and their wages not paid for about one year.
AIBDPA has extended its full support and solidarity to the action programme.

Its a kind request to the honour sir, its already been very late to receive our payments, about to 12 months. Its a situation of do and die for all contractual workers. We are all facing a lot of problems to survive and to provide all the facilities to our family. So please do anything as early as possible…thank you sir…

Dharna was organised today by BSNLEU and BSNLCCWF with this demand. The Pensioners Association AIBDPA gave all support and solidarity. Unions are making all out effort for the same.
