Mistake and injustice done in wage revision is now rectified:-
The unions/associations in BSNL served the strike notice for settlement and extension of 78.2% IDA merger fixation benefits to BSNL staff. The BSNL management had earlier signed an agreement on 12-06-2012 for extension of 78.2% IDA benefits and sent the proposal to DOT for its approval. But the DOT was avoiding to convey the approval on one or the other pretexts. This forced the unions to adopt the path of struggle to achieve the legitimate claim of staff. The representatives of unions met Secy, DOT on 06-06-2013 and urged for the settlement.
The NFTE leaders met the CMD on 6th/7th June and impressed upon him the necessity for settlement. He had asserted that the agreement of 12-06-2012 signed with unions will be honoured and it is his responsibility to get the matter settled by the DOT.
The CMD, Shri R.K. Upadhyay contacted President, NFTE over phone on 07-06-2013 in the evening and conveyed twice that the DOT has approved the 78.2% IDA merger proposal sent by BSNL.
The NFTE HQR congratulate and greet the workers who stood like rock to achieve their legitimate right. Thus mistake and injustice done to the BSNL employees in the wage revision has been rectified to some extent. This has been the commitment of NFTE in 6th verification which is how achieved with the cooperation of all the unions.
