It is reported that Com. K. Sebastin, General Secretary of SNEA and Com. Prahlad Rai General Secretary of AIBSNLEA have been been issued charge sheet by the management for trade union activities. We condemn this unwarranted victimisation of trade union leaders and demand the management to drop the same without any delay.
Com. Ram Naresh Prasad, Dist. Secretary, BSNLEU, Jamshedpur has been compulsorily retired on the basis of false charges by the Sr.GM Jamshedpur. It is a vengeance against the Dist. Secretary for taking up the genuine issue of employees as well as the exploitation of the casual and contract workers.
We strongly condemn the vengeful act and demand that the official be reinstated. It is to be remembered that the Sr.GM B.N.Singh was transferred from Bongaigaon (Assam) to Jamshedpur after several complaints were found against him. We demand that he should be transferred from Jamshedpur.
The Joint Action Committee of BSNLEU, SNEA(I) and CCLU (BSNLCCWF) Kerala Circle is organising a Convention at Thiruvananthapuram on 5th October 2015 which will be addressed by Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNLEU, Com.K.Sebastin, General Secretary, SNEA(I) and Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri, President, BSNLCCWF.
The Kerala BSNL workers under the leadership of the three unions are conducting sustained militant struggles on the demands of the Contract workers and also against suspension and other victimisation of the leaders and workers of BSNLEU and SNEA.
Revolutionary greetings to the heroic comrades of Kerala BSNL circle, who will continue the struggle till victory!
UNITY FOR STRUGGLE! STRUGGLE FOR UNITY! UNITY & STRUGGLE FOR PROGRESS!
Four all India leaders of BSNL Employees Union, including the President Com. Balbir Singh and General Secretary Com. P.Abhimanyu are going to sit on hunger strike on 22nd July 2015 at the Corporate Office premises demanding vacation of victimisation of the BSNL employees at Jamshedpur by the GM. Many officials, including union office-bearers are transferred and punished at the whims and fancy of the District Administration. Contract labours are retrenched. Several discussions at the District, Circle and Corporate office levels have not brought any result.
It is the continued victimisation of the workers and also the non-intervention by the higher ups that has compelled the CHQ office-bearers to go on hunger strike.
We demand the CMD BSNL to take immediate action against the concerned GM Jamshedpur and also cause vacation of victimisation of union workers there and avoid a direct confrontation with the recognised unions and its leaders, which compelled them to decide for hunger strike on 22nd July 2015.
Criminal cases were filed against 148 Maruti workers against strike and some unhappy incidents in Maruti Suzuki company two years back. All the workers are in jail due to the connivance of Maruti company and Haryana Govt. It is only a few days back that some 77 and another 2 workers got bail.
The Haryana Government even did not recognise the union which is having huge majority with them. The government was harassing the workers and put them in jail to please the MNC.
Now one more information has come. The Haryana Government had engaged top and Senior Advocate K.T.S.Tulsi against the workers and paid him Rs. 5.20 crore as legal fee, in violation of existing rule. It was during the earlier government. The new government is reported to order a probe in the matter.
