31.10.2012: TO KILL A RAT DON’T BURN YOUR HOUSE:
The repatriation of non-opted ITS are essential and unavoidable. FNTO is fully endorsing
this view and we have no two opinions on this issue. That is why we have joined
the series of agitations since last 20th onwards and after lodging our protest to
management / Government and further discussions with the authorities, we have decided
to defer the agitation for the time being. But other unions wanted to continue the
agitations, knowingly that the prolonged agitations will give wrong signal to the
all ready fed up subscribers and the reaming subscribers will also leave the BSNL.
The company is in loss of Rs 8500/- crores and we should not allow it to bleed further.
Don’t Destroy BSNL in the name of ITS:
In BSNL/MTNL more than 500 Dy. GMs posts are vacant. If the remaining ITS also relieved,
1800 POSTS OF SENIOUR POSITIONS will be VACANT. The question remain is how these
resultant vacancies will be filled- up? Can BSNL function without district heads?
If our sister unions can answer this question; we will definitely join the agitation.
One should not forget that the scheme envisaged in 2004 for the recruitment of the
Management trainees was scuttled by the executive unions and the ITS, both together
for their own hidden reasons.
If the hidden agenda is to fill-up these posts with the BSNL executives, then FNTO
will not agree to it, rather we will oppose it, unless non executives like qualified
TTAs and Sr. TOAs etc. are considered for filling up the resultant vacant executive

22.03.2012: V.R.S. in BSNL – Information emerging from our various reliable sources
indicates that the much published V.R.S. Scheme is far away. There is no probability
that Govt. may spare require amount and even if it takes place that will take minimum
two years as the procedure is complex involving multi govt. agencies. Second thinking
is emerging which reads BSNL HQ may prefer reducing retirement age from 60 years
to 58 years for which the procedure will be somewhat simple and may serve the purpose
to some extent as targeted officials would have been retired by that date. This
option even if exercised by the authorities it may take not less than 18 months
period. This means this would also be possible after April, 2013 or even later date.

03.03.32012: SUCCESSFUL GENERAL STRIKE OF 28TH FEBURARY 12.
The 28th February national strike called by 11 Central trade union organizations
like INTUC, AITUC, BMS, CITU, HMS, AIUTUC, TUCI and NLO, and supported by about
5000 other smaller trade unions was a success. It was successful in not only bringing
together the much divided trade union movement but was also able to covey its seriousness
on the issues facing the Indian working class . It was also able to project its
collective strength and influence of the Indian labor movement over the workers.
The ‘10 point Charter of Demand’ that included rising unemployment, labour rights
violations, mass contractualization, price rise particularly of essential commodities,
on a social security, Privatization etc.
According to the reports received. Over a million of workers are said to have joined
the strike. The employees of banking and insurance sector, Telecom, Postal the road
transport employees port and dock sector Other sectors including power, retails,
garment, automobile, hospitality, cement, etc. were also hit by the strike . The
railways had opted out from the strike. The strike was most effective in states
of Assam, Bihar, Haryana, Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odessa, Rajasthan, Tamil
Nadu, Tripura and West Bengal. The West Bengal government’s repressive orders failed
to deter the trade unions in the joining the strike.
The CTUOs have warned the government that incase their demands are not addressed
there will be another such strike.
Congratulation to all for the success of the strike.

CMD – BSNL
Sub: Recognition to NUBSLW (FNTO) .
It is learnt that recently BSNLEU, the recognized union has written to management
agreeing for recognition for more than one union and also extension of T.U facilities.
It has also come to our knowledge that this subject is under active consideration
of the management.
CMD is aware that NUBSNLW (FNTO) had already taken up the matter with management
and also with Govt to grant recognition to our union as we have secured 7.5% votes
(and also having more than 20000 members as per check off system). In this connection
we would like to invite the kind attention of CMD regarding the case pending at
Hon’ble High Court of Kerala (Ernakulum) and its interim order which states that
the provisional recognition granted to BSNLEU is subject to the final outcome of
the verdict in this case.
As per NUSBNLW (FNTO) plea in that case for recognition, it is requested that recognition
may please be extended to our union also. Hope that CMD will favorably. consider

19.10.2011: JAC Strike On VRS – WHETHER IT IS NECESSARY?
Convener JAC approached us with an appeal to join JAC sponsored strike on 15.11.2011
against VRS and other demands. while thanking the convener for the invitation we
have clearly expressed our view on VRS and joint agitation, i.e. FNTO will not stand
between VRS and willing employees provided the package is good and purely optional.
It is premature to fix a date for strike when the govt is yet to approve any VRS
Further we do not favour stoppage of work especially when the BSNL financial position
is slipping from worst to worst. But strike may become inevitable if a poor package
is thruster upon workers compulsorily.
However, NUBSNLW FNTO will announce a separate programme of action ( without stoppage
of work ) on general demands placed by INTUC and specific demands of BSNL workers
like 78.2% IDA merger, improvement in NEPP and wage revision, grant of Ex-Garcia
in lieu of bonus etc.

4.4 Recommendation No.4 (Para 2.18.1 (iv)): reads “ (i) “Proposal of BSNL seeking
support for loss making telegraph services to be finalized immediately in consultation
with DOT Finance” Click.
GS BDPA Writes : After virtually unceremoniously closing telegraph services through
out country, what is to be asked for? Telegrams are not booked in 80% of BSNL service
providing centers and no device for scanty booked telegrams is available and telegrams
so booked are dispatched by post, giving business to Postal Department. What prompts
the BSNL to officially recommend closure of Telegraph Service is hundred dollar
mark question. Majority of telegraph service staff is already retired and rest are
being successfully deployed in BSNL services. Then why should they to say “loss
making telegraph services.” It was time to demand the same long back and maintain
services, but not it is too late to even look back.

welfare of the workers and pensioners as well. He was Circle Secretary, NUTEE Class
III, GS NUTE & All India President. FNTO. His contribution in the Gujarat Telecom
Map will always relish green memories of workers of Gujarat. His speeches in Membership
Verification in Gujarat Circle are still robbing hearts of the Telecom Workers irrespective
of their membership elsewhere. Starting his career as TTA in C.T.O. Jamnagar, he
is retiring from his home circle Kerala which is unique incident which rarely happens.
In the Union, he started his journey as Branch Secretary and traveled long path
to reach the highest glorious place in Telecom. His relationship with members and
officers of the company were always cordial and success oriented. During his stay
in Gujarat he had started publication of regional news paper and as GS NUTEE he
also published NUTEE Bulletins regularly despite many odds. In 2002 earthquake in
Gujarat, he traveled all quake prone areas and surveyed himself and ensured help
from UNI which is in the golden memories of affected workers.
To-day, when he is retiring from the Company, we wish him hearty good bye and pray
for his all-round prosperity and hope that he will continue to serve the interest
of BSNL Workers and Pensioners without any break.
A..V. Falia, Circle President.

The list of Coordinators announced on the web site by the FNTO BSNL EA of Bangalore
Telecom District, Bangalore is bogus, baseless and one- sided and against democratic
norms. This is propagated to confuse the members in a desperate way. The names of
members in the list are actively campaigning for NUBSNLW (FNTO) in Bangalore and
solidly supporting us. Any untoward incidence in this ugly and malicious game of
tarnishing the image of NUBSNLW (FNTO) and individual will solely be at their risk.
The legal action will be initiated against that union for stooping to such a low
