Despite workers protest, BSNL Board approves VRS

The insensitive BSNL Board has approved VRS for one lakh workers in the Board meeting held on 29th October (yesterday), according to unconfirmed reports. The JAC has already given notice for one day strike on 10th October 2011. Instead of discussing the matter with the unions and sorting put the issue, the management has taken a confrontationist attitude.
The management forgets that the workforce is an asset, instead of a liability. VRS has not helped any company. The VRS is a method to reduce the workforce in its policy for disinvestment and privatisation. The JAC and workforce will fight this decision with all its strenth.


Responses

  1. The heading “Despite workers protest:” clearly shows How weak the JAC is. If the JAC is really interested to safeguard the employees, it should learn the mighty word “Unity” at least now and unite all the forces especially the II major Union NFTE to its fold. It is verywell known that the united struggle alone has paved way for 50% IDA merger and Gupta’s effort has yielded the much lauded pension by invoking Rule 37A. Let us hope and pray at least now Com. Namboodiri act in a positive way to avoid VRS and safeguard the employees .


    • BSNLEU and JAC has always tried to build up unity. It was only after BSNLEU got recognition that the JAC was formed at its initiative. Strong struggles were waged under JAC and we ha ve stopped VRS, disinvestment etc. earlier. But NFTE and FNTO left the Joint Forum due to the issues in the verification. We tried and brought them back by even changing the name from Joint Forum to JAC. At the time of V membership verifiction NFTE and FNTO left on flimsy grounds. We have written several letters to them and requested to participate. The non-participation by these organisations are not due to activities of JAC but by the issues connected with the verification like recognition of unions, facilities, new unions etc. That is not at all directly connected with the common issues confronting the JAC. However JAC has approached all these unions at this critical time and we hope that they may respond favourably.

  2. VRS proposal sent to DOT by the BSNL board. Other unions say this news already known to BSNLEU three or four months before itself. One rumor says that instead of 60 days calculation, only 30 days will be given. what is the stand for VRS as for as BSNL EU is concerned. and why other unions are not united with the BSNLEU in this matter.
