In Joint Meeting of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA on 22nd Aug-14 at Hyderabad, it was decided to submit joint cautionary letter to management on various pending HR issues and then launch Joint agitation if need arise. But unfortunately getting this message, SNEA (I) has declared it’s agitation program alone. It indubitable that during the referendum process management cannot take decision under agitation pressure of any stand-alone association participating in referendum process. In fact management was in the process to take decision on Standard Pay Scale, 30% Superannuation, Time Bound Functional Promotion & Uniform Period of 4 years for First Time Bound Promotion etc. this decision will be held up due to this agitation notice as management cannot take risk to give credit to any single association.
What forced SNEA (I) to serve agitation notice alone during the process of referendum is very much clear. This association doesn’t see their commitment to resolve the very basic issues in respect of direct recruits but their agitation is simply to withhold the resolution.
AIGETOA has already held long agitation of about 50 days during last one year on these issues, results of which is very much visible that every association including BSNL top management have recognized the legitimacy of our issues. Despite of the fact that SNEA (I) has served this agitation notice to sabotage the resolution of the issues, AIGETOA will extend full physical support if they really show their commitment towards resolution of the issues and they serve notice for stronger agitation then AIGETOA has already held. We are also confident that AIBSNLEA will come together along with AIGETOA to support this strong agitation program.
