BSNL Employees Union CHQ has called upon its Branches/SSAs to organise powerful protest demonstrations on 24th August 2016 against the cowardly attack on BSNLEU W.Bengal Office by the Trinamool goons a few days back. The union office, which is inside the CTO Building, Calcutta has been ransacked and the workers there attacked. The BSNL Management has to immediately file FIR against these goons as also bring this to the notice of the Central government since a crucial office under security has been gate-crashed and union office ransacked.
Organise the demonstrations with massive participation and explain to the workers the attacks on the trade unions in W.Bengal by the Trinamool goons. It is also clear that the police is not taking action probably on the directions of the government.
We will not tolerate attack on our union and union workers! The government and the BSNL Management should take immediate action against the culprints and esnure the security f the workers.
