Supreme Court allows quota in SC/ST employees' promotion until Constitution bench adjudicates on issue

05-06-2018

There was some speculation of revision of Seniority list No. 6&7 in SDE(T). if it is changed, a large numbers of SC/ST executives would displace from existing seniority position to down side and many of them in the bottom side of seniority List No7.

So to enquire the actual facts in the matter GS SEWA along with Shri RA Meena AGS(Central) met Jt.GM(Pers.), as GM(Pers) is on leave, and discussed the matter in detailed. We demanded not to revise the existing seniority list No. 6 & 7. In this regard we have also written a letter to Dir(HR) with copy to all concerned.

We also requested to implement the Order dated 17.5.2018 of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India so as to cover the maximum numbers of SC/ST executives while issuing promotion. Response of Jt.GM(Pers) was positive on both the points.

========================================================================
Hearty Congratulations to our 103 SC/ST Brothers and Sisters who got SDE Promotion with the Sincere Efforts of One and Only
SEWA BSNL".
UNITY IS OUR STRENGTH
====================================================================

JTO to SDE under LDCE Quota was declared on 25-5-2018 for the Examination conducted on 21--5-2016. In the result declared on 25-5-2018, A grave injustice was done to the 103 SC/ST Executives ( SC 72 ST 31 ) who were declared Qualified vide letter no 24-3/2015-Rectt dated 21-5-2018 with 45% qualifying marks.

Immediately, We Met Shri Keshav Rao GM ( Pers) on 26-5-2018 and recorded our brawny dissent. He assured that they Will take Legal opinion in reference to the Supreme Court of India order dated 17-5-20108 to release subsequent List covering all qualified SC/ST Executives. We also Submitted a Strong Representation to the Director ( HR ) Smt Sujata Ray on 28-5-2018 with a Copy to the CMD, GM (Pers) and CLO ( SCT ).

We expressed our Sentiments and feelings to the Director ( HR ) that after declared Qualified with 45% marks as per notification, there is no any justification or legality is involved in this matter. Again We met Director (HR) on 30/5 morning, finally Director ( HR) agreed to release the left out list and as per assurance given by Director ( HR) Qualified list for 103 Executives ( 72 SC and 31 ST ) released on 30-5-2018 evening.

Our Majority Executives are in Officers Associations despite repeated requests made by us . No any Associations shown interest or requested BSNL Management to release order for 103 SC/ST Executives who got 45 % Qualifying marks in LDCE. We only took up the issue by using our full Strength. Finally we have proved our Sewa Strength

Congrats to All Qualified Executives. Please mind, SEWA is the only Platform to Safeguard our Constitutionally Granted Rights for SC/STs working in BSNL. On the other hand, Other Associations and Unions have proved themselves that they are working Only for the General Interest of Employees and that is why They Didn't take any Interest to Release the Promotion Order of SC/ST candidates who qualified with 45% marks. They are allowing CPSU Cadre Hierarchy because they are always reflecting the voice of others and working against the interest of SC/STs .

CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is nothing but a Conspiracy to abolish Reservation roster. We have repeatedly opposed the same as it is against the interest of SC/ST Executives .

Definitely, SEWA will not leave any rock unturned and take Strong efforts organisationally and legally against CPSU Cadre Hierarchy.

Our Honest and Sincere Thanks to Shri R A Meena AGM CP BSNLCO & AGS ( C ) , Shri Mukesh AO CS BSNLCO and Shri Satyaveer Singh CS NTR for their dedication in dealing with Executives issues.

It is quite strange that an associations, who is showing sympathy now to these our SC/ST members, appears to be involved in this conspiracy.

None other than SEWA can be well wisher for SC/ST employees. SEWA is the mother organisation of SC/ST employees and everyone know that mother never do politics.

So kindly rethink that who is your enemy and who is your well wisher.

Don't paid money to other associations which is being used against you.

Today GS SEWA BSNL met Dir(HR) along with Shri RA Meena AGS(Central) and Shri Mukesh CS BSNLCO. We raised the issue of non issuance of promotion and posting orders from JTO(T) to SDE(T) of our LDCE Qualified SC/ST members.

categorically told that since 25.5.2018 our members are feeling humiliation and disgrace at every moment and it very difficult for us to wait further more time so we want your commitment up to what time we can expect the order of promotion and posting.

We further told that as per Notification they are meeting the requirements and accordingly BSNL declared them qualified, so there is no any legality is involved at all in the matter. We are not able to bear more discrimination. Congrats to our members, Dir(HR) assured us to issue the promotion orders at the earliest.

Hearty Congratulations to all our members who got promotion after waiting for around 3 years.

As per DOPT existing OM dated 30.9.2016 SC/ST candidates falling in the list by their own merit shall cover the roster points also. So we apparently see the short fall in SC/ST category around 103 members.

We will examine each and every points in the next week and take the matter with Dir(HR) for our remaining members.

SEWA BSNL categorically raised the issue verbal as well as in written that Management is under pressure withholding the CPC/LDCE to bring CPSU hierarchy.

We specially appreciate Shri RA Meena AGS(Central)' Shri Mukesh CS BSNLCO and Satyaveer Singh CS NTR for supporting NP&GS at every steps.

Again congratulations to all who got Promotion order and after this we assure our those members whose name is not in this list that we will take the matter on priority basis for releasing of promotion order of remaining brothers and sisters who got 45% marks. When we met yesterday to GM (Pers) around 9pm, he assure us that they will take legal opinion in reference to Supreme Court Order dated 17.05.2018 and release subsequent list covering all qualified candidates.

Keeping in view that the matter of CPSU cadre hierarchy is likely to be taken in the next Board meeting on 28.5.2018 for approval, so SEWA BSNL CHQ has represented the matter to Hon'ble ST Commission.

In addition to the earlier points ( not repeated for the sake of brevity) , the following points has been raised:

1. It not only takes away the reservation roster but also kills the qualifying service 2 year {existing 3 to 5 years} for JTO to SDE and from SDE to AGM, 5 years for existing executives {existing 7 to 12 years} & 3 years for new executives after its implementation {7 to 10, (5 SDE to Sr. SDE + 5 Sr.SDE to AGM =10) } and snatching the benefit of one increment on promotion in same scale available to most of SC/ST executive by virtue of reservation roster..

2. Any major policy decision, where SC/ST employees are affected, are to be consulted with the Hon'ble Commission as per provisions of the Constitution.

3. The existing EPP was formulated with deep discussion and mammoth meeting with DoT, with holy motive and broad approach, whereas CPSU hierarchy drafted with ulterior motive and narrow approach to snatch away the reservation roster only.

4. Recommendation of committee started with dissent note of two officers at GM level, member representing BSNL, apart from members of other associations, however, some associations continued to influence top level and now management is backing their views.

Some interlocutory applications were filed by general category officers from Ministry of External Affairs etc. came up for hearing in court number 5 of Honorable Supreme Court on 17.05.2018.

After the initial hearing in the forenoon, our advocate Dr K S Chauhan senior advocate Supreme Court, who represented the case for impleadment of Railways Association in the same case i.e Jarnaill Singh vs Lachhmi Narayan case, informed us over phone that the matter was tilted in favour of general category candidates. But it was on his intervention that the ASG gave an undertaking to the court that he will get instructions from the DOPT on Policy of Reservation in Promotion after issue of DOPT O.M. dated 30 09 2016. He advised us to get in touch with the DOP&T so that it is in the position to state its policy in terms of the rulings of the Honorable Court in the past. Accordingly, Rohtas Bhankad Ji the General Secretary ,Central Govt Employee quickly dispatched a letter to DOPT in this regard. He also met some officials and advised them to take care of the interests of SC ST employees in the Supreme Court.

As a result of the sincere effort by Dr. KS Chauhan we have been able to protect the interests of all the SC/ ST employees working in Government Sector.

SEWA BSNL CHQ congratulate Advocate Dr K S Chauhan for his valiant efforts to protect the constitutionally granted rights provided by Dr B R Ambedkar through Indian Constitution.

GS SEWA BSNL Writes letter to Secretary DOT on Implementation of CPSU hierarchy

CPSU hierarchy Salient points of representation:

1. It proposes to abolish reservation roster so it violates the provisions of constitution of India and also against the policy of Govt.

2. Existing EPP is one of the fruit for leaving the lien of DoT while opting the absorption in BSNL by thousands of executives including SC/ST. Scrapping EPP is breach of promise made by Govt and bad in law.

3 It is not co-incidence that the proposal of CPSU hierarchy cropped up in/ around 2015 and around the same time some executives started to file court case to block promotion through CPC to justify CPSU hierarchy. Management has not taken any action them in spite of strong opposition by SEWA.

4. BSNL advocates reservation roster before Hon’ble court but does away with the applicability of roster in CPSU hierarchy.

5. Committee drafted the CPSU hierarchy proposal didn't included any member of SC/ST not even CLO(SCT) which is mandatory as per Govt instructions so any recommendations given by committee are in fructuous & liable to be scrapped.

GS SEWA BSNL met Dir(HR) along with Sh R A Meena AGS(Central) and Shri Mukesh CS BSNL CO on 14-05-2018.

We strongly condemned the decision of Management Committee regarding approval to issue promotion order keeping reserved the SC/ST vacancies as per roster subject to the outcome of the Hon'ble Supreme Court. We apprised Dir (HR) the earlier stand of BSNL and court cases filed by BSNL before Hon'ble Supreme Court of India wherein BSNL has advocated the rule of reservation to protect the interest of SC/ST executives.

We told that BSNL has also filed an application before Hon'ble SC of Indian to allow BSNL to issue promotion orders by applying rules of reservation and recently Notice in this matter has been issued to all the concerned by Hon'ble SC of India.

Therefore, the approval of management committee is in contradiction to the aforesaid pending application before the hon'ble Supreme Court of India. Dir(HR) listened to us very positively and also advised us to meet CS& CGM(Legal) BSNLCO.

Accordingly we met CGM(Legal) also and raised our concerns. He also assured us to look into the matter. From above discussion it appears that Pers Cell has not submitted all facts to the management committee. It is also fact that Pers Cell is trying to issue promotion without protecting the interest of SC/ST employees either through CPC or CPSU hierarchy. CPSU hierarchy will abolish the roster permanently.
We assure you that we will not allow BSNL Management to issue any promotion order without Rule of Reservation.
If required we will issue Notice for Agitational Program to protect our constitutionally granted rights.

BYE LAW AMENDMENTS
====================
FINISHING APPEAL
"""":::::::::::::::::::::::"""""""
Dear Leaders, Associates and Bonafide Ardent Members of Sewabsnl, Jaibheem.

The Present Shape of bye law Provisions of Sewabsnl is not reflect Changing Scenario.There is no remedy in the bye for great number of issues. Due to this loop holes and weak bye law Provisions we are unable to control the Tress passers and Unlawful actions of Vested interest. Facing enormous pain and difficulties in our day to day affairs of Association and dealing with BSNL Management.

In order to make it fairer or more accurate or to reflect Changing Circumstances, We must have a Formidable bye law for Sewabsnl as suggested by Bro T Jagadish CS Sewabsnl of Karnataka Circle.

Without Amendments, It is not possible. We can have a formidable bye law and We can safe guard our Sovereignty like other Unions and Associations only by Amending by law Provisions of Sewabsnl. We were repeatedly without exceptions or reversals trying to convene a Special Annual General Body Meeting of Sewabsnl for bye law Amendments. Huge Appeals were made, Sought Suggestions, but All went in vain. Anyhow, We are placing again a finishing appeal to all.

Hence, All CHQ , Circle, District Office Bearers and Bonafide loyal Members of Sewabsnl are requested to record your Views/Opinions/Suggestions in this regard before 31st March 2018 on the three WhatsApp groups of Sewabsnl :
1) CHQ Governing Body
2) CHQ BSNL SC/ST EWA

Unprecedented/Unjustified Communication of the CLO (SCT) to Satisfy Vested interest

Dear Associates, Leaders, Bonafide Members and Well Wishers of Sewabsnl, Jaibheem.

Our Respected CLO (SCT) , on 21/3/2018, has written a letter to All CHQ Governing Body Members intensionally to Satisfy Vested interest with regard to Submission of Audited Accounts even before completion of Financial Year. As it is purposive and unhealthy practice, It is our bounden duty to Clarify before Start of Tittle-tattle by Whistle-blowers.

In BSNL, Erstwhile 4 SC/ST Associations were joined together under the one banner (Sewabsnl) on 28-2-2007.

From 2007 to 2014, 3 All India Conferences were conducted with Shri B R Jakhatia, Shri K Baburao and Shri R Raveendran as General Secretaries respectively.

From 2007 to 2014 , No Accounts were Maintained or Submitted by these 3 General Secretaries either to Registrar of Societies or to BSNL Management. SCT Cell of BSNL didn't even bother to ask them to submit at least painless elementary accounts on completion of their tenure.

But , After Solapur Conference, while Adhoc status accorded to Solapur Governing Body with P N Perumal as NP and N D Ram as GS, BSNL Management issued a letter to us on 27-8-2015 to submit previous years Audited Statements of Accounts from 2012 to 2015 before 30-10-2015 . Though It was not related to us and there were lot of fraudulent discrepancies in accounts , facing enormous hurdles, We Submitted 3 consecutive financial year Audited Accounts ( 2012-13, 2013-14 , 2014-15 ) within the Stipulated time framed by SCT Cell of BSNL Corporate Office.

Now, Present 2 years tenure (2015-17) Audited Statements of Accounts only are yet to be submitted. This 2 financial year Accounts also have already handed over to an External Professional Auditor for Statements of Audited Accounts. Now, Auditing of Accounts is under process and will complete within couple of days.

Time to time, to Maintain cordiality and good relationship between Management and Sewabsnl, We are conveying everything to our Respected CLO (SCT) including Auditing details.

In response to his letter dated 2-11-2017 regarding submission of Audited Accounts, eventhough orally informed, We have submitted a letter to our CLO (SCT) on 20-3-2018 assuring to submit well in advance ie before 5th AIC to be held on 17th & 18th April 2018.

But ignoring and without considering our letter dtd 20-3-2018, All of a sudden, Abruptly, in an unprecedented manner, under pressure of Power Mongers/ Vested interest, Our Respected CLO ( SCT ) has communicated this to All CHQ Governing Body Members vide letter dtd 21-3-2018 .

In the past 12 years History of Sewabsnl, We can proudly say that the Present CHQ Governing body is the only Governing Body Completed its Full Tenure Period of Two Years with your blessings Successfully without any deviation or dispute. We have achieved numerous policy issues, filed Cases in CAT Chandigarh, Punjab High court and Honb'le Supreme court of India to safe guard our reservation rights particularly reservation in Promotion of Executives working in BSNL. For that cases we have Spent more than 15 lacs so for and we have redressed hundreds of individual's grievances and disciplinary cases and this is the only Body conducted 4 Quarterly Meeting with BSNL Management New Delhi and settled lot of major issues . From 2007 to 2016 , Erstwhile CHQ Governing Bodies were conducted only one Quarterly Meeting each with BSNL Management New Delhi during their tenure. The Present CHQ Governing body alone working for the larger interest of SC/ST Employees working in BSNL with devotion and full fledged.

In this prevailing pleasing atmosphere, the act of CLO ( SCT ) is Suspicious, Apprehensive, Highly irregular, Unwarranted, Excessive and against bye law Provisions of Sewabsnl and damaging the image of Sewabsnl.

Anyhow, We are doing our best and we are doing our job in a right path and we Will not give any room for commotion.

Hence , before the assured date , we will Submit a copy of Audited Statements of Accounts to the BSNL Management . Not only required 2 financial years ( 2015-16, 2016-17 ) but also we will try to submit Audited Statement of Accounts till March 2018.

Meeting between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL.

A meeting is held at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL. Together with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT, Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, OSD to the Hon’ble Minister, DDG (Estt.), DoT, CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, Sh N D RAM GS SEWA BSNL, Sh Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE, Sh Prahlad Rai GS AIBSNLEA, Sh Jayaprakash GS FNTO, Sh P Abhimanyu GS BSNLEU, Sh K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Sh Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Sh Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Sh S.D. Sharma, GS, BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon’ble Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the Hon’ble Minister, the details of which are as follows:-

3rd Pay Revision.

So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are not eligible for 3rd Pay Revision. In today’s meeting the Hon’ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rd Pay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the Cabinet.

Formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.

The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000 mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL. They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that, the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the Hon’ble Minister in this regard is non-committal and not satisfactory. The AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back of the Subsidiary Tower Company.

Pension Revision.

The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the BSNL pensioners. The Hon’ble Minister assured that needful action would be taken to settle this issue, and directed the Secretary to take necessary action.

Calculation of Pension Contribution.

It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government employees on deputation. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central Government employees is being deducted on the basis of actual pay only w.e.f. 01.01.2017. The Hon’ble Minister directed the Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per Government orders.

Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be accepted. The Hon’ble Minister replied in the positive and assured that needful action would be taken and spectrum will be allotted to BSNL.

Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58.

The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to 58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon’ble Minister told that the government is not having any proposal to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.

Left out issues of the 2nd PRC.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The Hon’ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into by the Secretary, DoT.

At the end of the meeting, the Hon’ble Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of today’s meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of the issues.

After the meeting with the Hon’ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in the FNTO’s office. All the General Secretaries expressed their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the issues. They also expressed the view that all these have happened only because of the united struggles and massive mobilisations by the entire Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, for which they deserve appreciation.

Membership Drive

Dear Sewabsnl Leaders of CHQ, Circles, Districts and Branches, Jaibheem.

Though we have hundreds of Members in every SSA throughout the Nation, most of them are Dual Members. The ratio of Single Members Strength is lesser than dual members strength.

Eventhough we normally allowing enrolment of dual memberships, in no way it would be beneficial to our Association. Because, As per the bye law Provisions of Sewabsnl, only the Strength of Single Membership Will be taken into account for deciding Delegates Strength and contesting in the their respective Circle, District and Branch elections. Single Members only can decide and take forward our aims and objectives and work for the success of our issues and come out from the obstacles created by the communal minded colourable fanatic Unions and Associations.

This is the right time to increase our Single Membership Strength. As per the existing guidelines/ Circulars/instructions of Bsnl corporate office, Our SC/ST Communities Members Can withdraw their Membership from other Unions and Associations run by Caste Minded fake unionist and can convert dual membership into Single Membership before January 15th.

We are Planning to conduct our All India Conference Very soon. So, this is the right time to increase our Single Membership Strength to increase Maximum number of delegates to Participate in the ensuing Sewabsnl All India Conference.

Hence, Our Leaders of All levels are hereby once again cordially requested to honestly and sincerely involve in this and Approach those who are in the Unions and Associations to withdraw their Membership from unions and Associations and Approach our dual members to Convert as Single Member before January 15th .

Please don't waste time . Act fast for the betterment of the SC/ST Employees Welfare Association of BSNL and for the sake of SC/STs working in BSNL.

BSNL seeks 4G spectrum in lieu of equity
Ahead of its 4G services rollout, state-owned BSNL is seeking 5MHz spectrum in the 2100 MHz band, which it wants to partly fund by offering additional equity to the government. The acquisition of additional spectrum in the 2100 MHz band is critical for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) for all- India rollout of 4G services through the Long Term Evolution route (a standard for high-speed mobile communication).

The Detailed Project Report (DPR) cleared by the BSNL's Board of Directors on December 21 entails all aspects of the project, including capital expenditure and other expenses, but, more importantly, the spectrum required for an all-India 4G footprint.

Dear Brothers & Sisters

As per the advice of Dir HR BSNL Smt. Sujata Ray a meeting of SEWA BSNL was fixed with GM (SR) Sh A M Gupta & OSD of Dir HR Sh V K Sinha in the chamber of GM (SR) at 4.30 pm Today for the view of SEWA BSNL on the issue of"CPSU CADRE HIERARCHY".

General Secretary N D RAM along with Circle President & Circle Secretary of BSNL Corporate Office Sh R A MEENA & SH MUKESH attended the meeting and Strongly placed the view of SEWA in the Larger & Longer interest of SC/ST Executives on the issue cited above and handed over one strong representation

SEWA boldly condemn the move of BSNL management on CPSU HIERARCHY issue and cleared intention that SEWA can approach to the Supreme Court also if management will try to impose CPSU HIERARCHY without Rule of Reservation and Roster.

The main reasons behind SEWA Opinion are:-
1. CPSU HIERARCHY is based on Khan Committee which was one sided view of General Executive Association as only GS of Executives Association were members of the Khan Committee.
2. SEWA view was not taken into account in the interest of SC/ST as No SEWA representative was the member in the Khan Committee.
3.CLO (SCT) Cell was ignored and no member taken from SCT Cell BSNL CO in the Khan Committee.
4. No Provisions of Rule of Reservation & Roster for SC/ST being a post based promotion.
5. Betrayal of Agreement with SC/ST made at the time of Absorption in BSNL.
6. Govt of India has not accepted the three crucial points quoted in Nagraj Judgement.
7. DOP&T has not issued any OM that Reservation has been withdrawn.
8. BSNL had itself filed 3 SLP & 1 IA in the Honorable Supreme Court in support of Reservation in Promotion.
9. 3 SLP filed by SEWA BSNL against Chandigarh CAT order are still pending in Honorable Supreme Court.
10. Honorable Supreme Court had referred the Reservation in Promotion issue to the Higher Constitutional Bench .
11. Once matter is Subjudice for Reservation issue, how BSNL can think for other option like CPSU Hierarchy without Rule of Reservation.
12. Since there was no member from SEWA & SCT Cell in Khan Committee , so all decision of Khan Committee like CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is in fructuous.

Final Suggestions by SEWA to BSNL is:-
"Conduct DPC & Issue Promotion Order for all Executive Cadre Applying Rule of Reservation in Promotion for SC/ST, Subject to the Final Outcome of the Honorable Supreme Court of India" so that General as well as SC/ST Executives could get promotion in time.

8th Round of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the Wage Policy for the 8thRound of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs).

Highlights:

i. Management of the CPSEs would be free to negotiate wage revision for workmen where the periodicity of wage settlement of five years or ten years has expired generally on 31.12.2016 keeping in view the affordability and financial sustainability of such wage revision for the CPSEs concerned.

ii. No budgetary support for any wage increase shall be provided by the Government. The entire financial implication would be borne by the respective CPSEs from their internal resources.

iii. In those CPSEs for which the Government has approved restructuring/ revival plan, the wage revision will be done as per the provisions of the approved restructuring / revival plan only.

iv. The management of the concerned CPSEs have to ensure that negotiated scales of pay do not exceed the existing scales of pay of executives/officers and non-unionized supervisors of respective CPSEs.

v. The Management of CPSEs where the five year periodicity is followed have to ensure that negotiated scales of pay for two successive wages negotiations do not exceed the existing scales of pay of executives/officers and non-unionized supervisors of respective CPSEs for whom ten years periodicity is being followed.

vi. To avoid conflict of pay scales of executives/non-unionised supervisors with that of their workmen, CPSEs may consider adoption of graded DA neutralization and/or graded fitment during the wage negotiations.

vii. CPSEs must ensure that any increase in wages after negotiations does not result in increase in administered prices of their goods and services.

viii. The wage revision shall be subject to the condition that there shall be no increase in labour cost per physical unit of output. In exceptional cases where CPSEs are already working at optimum capacity, the administrative Ministry / Department may consult DPE considering industry norms.

ix. The validity period of wage settlement would be for a minimum period of five years for those who opted for a five year periodicity and for a maximum period of ten years for those who have opted for a ten year periodicity of wage negotiation w.e.f. 01.01.2017.

x. The CPSEs would implement negotiated wages after confirming with their Administrative Ministry/Department that the wage settlement is in conformity with approved parameters.

Background:

There are about 12.34 lakh employees in 320 CPSEs in the country. Out of these, about 2.99 lakh employees are Board level and below Board level executives and non-unionized Supervisors. The remaining about 9.35 lakh employees belong to the unionized workmen category. Wage revision in respect of unionized workmen is decided by trade unions and managements of CPSEs in terms of guidelines issued by the Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) for wage negotiations.

On 14-11-2017, We Met and Appealed Leaders of SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIBSNLOA for Support Sewabsnl Stand / Views with regard to Reservation in Promotion of SC/ST Executives working in BSNL.

Considering our plea, the AIBSNLEA, in their Memorandum given to BSNL management on 15-11-2017 has mentioned in Para 7 of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy as under :
" AIBSNLEA is of the opinion for implementation of Roster on Promotion as per the existing DOPT directions or as per the outcome of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India judgement on pending SLPs filed by BSNL "
Although our GS SEWABSNL has Clarified with CHQ President of SNEA Shri Khan again on 15-11-2017 over phone regarding Reservation issues, the Stand / Views of SNEA in respect of implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy with Rule of Reservation is not clear so for.

Thanks to Shri S Sivakumar CHQ President and Shri Prahalad Rai General Secretary of AIBSNLEA for their immediate response.

We both National President and General Secretary with Shri Mukesh Circle Secretary Sewabsnl BSNL Corporate Office had a long time discussion with PGM (Pers) Shri D Chakrabarti on 14-11-2017 with regard to CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and Maintenance of SC /ST Reservation roster while implementing CPSU Cadre Hierarchy.

Shri Manishkumar JT GM (Pers) and Shri A K Mathur DGM (Pers) also attended in the meeting from management side.

In the Meeting, Shri D Chakrabarti PGM ( Pers ) tried to Convince us to accept Draft of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy approved by Management Committee of BSNL in Collusion with Communal minded recognized Executives Association. But, We Stubbornly opposed it. More than Two hours heated arguments took place in respect of Reservation points.

Finally, We recorded dissent Note on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy introducing without Reservation roster against the Stand of Govt of India. During the elaborate deep discussion, We, also pointed out about the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India decision on Reservation in promotion. The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has referred the matter of Reservation in promotion to the Constitutional Bench of the Supreme Court for taking final decision in the matter.

In View of above Scenario, We have requested BSNL management to keep the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy in abeyance till pronouncement of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India Constitutional Bench considering the views of Sewabsnl in the larger interest of SC/ST Executives working in BSNL or to Issue Promotion order in All Cadre with the existing Promotion policy applying Rule of Reservation subject to the Final outcome of the Constitutional Bench of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India so that all the Executives working in BSNL shall be benefitted.

Betrayal to SC/ST Executives by Introducing CPSU Hierarchy without Reservation benefits In BSNL, The Promotion upto DGM level is held up a long while owing to Various Court Cases against SC/ST Executive's Seniority and Reservation in Promotion.

For this reasons, Executive Associations such as SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA have been demanding to introduce a Uniform Time bound Promotion Policy without applying Reservation roster to avoid hurdles and undue delay by courts due to reservation related cases .

For this purpose a committee was formed by BSNL management on the issues raised by Executive Associations with regard to Time bound promotion. This is Called Khan Committee

The Khan Committee formed by BSNL Management has recommended Time bound functional promotion upto AGM level without applying Reservation roster but only with Benchmark relaxation as per the choice of Communal minded Executive Associations Leaders. The GS SNEA was also a Member in the said Khan Committee who accepted the recommendation without Reservation benefits to SC/ST Executives.

In the Recommendation given by the Khan Committee as per the will & wish of SNEA without Reservation benefits, the AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA have also signed and by signing they also exposed their Negativity and Anti Reservation face.

If Time bound promotion approved by BSNL management upto AGM level, there will be no Reservation roster. Promotion in DGM Grade has been recommended based on available Vacancy.

The Khan Committee has recommended " Three Good " and " Two Average " for SC/ST Executives in the Benchmark upto AGM level. But Now, as per the desire of SNEA, BSNL Management has tightened Benchmark Standard as " Four Good" and "One Average " which is against Khan Committee tips and reflecting the communal aversion of SNEA.

The issue of benchmark is the only debate between AIBSNLEA and SNEA. AIBSNLEA opposes only benchmark issue. AIBSNLEA demanding "Two Average" as per the Recommendation of Khan Committee. But SNEA has agreed for only " One Average " for SC/STs .

Regarding Reservation in promotion, It is crystal clear both SNEA and AIBSNLEA have not raised for any demand, relaxation and concession etc for continuing Reservation roster and to reduce number of years in the eligibility criteria in favour of SC/STs.By this concealing way they were betrayed their own SC/ST Members in particular and Total SC/STS in general. In nutshell they uniformly decided to abolish Reservation roster in BSNL.

Here we would like to clarify onething again that because of our constant and endless efforts and compulsion, Now BSNL has filed an IA Petition in Supreme Court of India for permission to issue promotion order with rule of Reservation. but on the otherside to satisfy the communal forces, trying to implement CPSU Cadre Hierarchy which has absolutely no provision for Reservation. The main intention of management as well as recognised Executive Association ( SNEA ) is to annihilate total Reservation provisions in BSNL. This present concept and draft is nothing but a big conspiracy against SC/ST executives working in BSNL.

SC/ST Executives may also can approach court of law as presently getting seniority as per roster upto AGM level and thus although being recruited in the same recruitment year can get promotion earlier to OC Category Colleagues, whereas in the present structure of CPSU, if time bound promotions are considered, our SC/ST Executives will retain the same seniority upto AGM level. It is reiterated that Sewabsnl CHQ will reject any move and proposal of BSNL in regard to CPSU Cadre Hierarchy without Reservation / relaxation provisions. Due to our strong protest and Objection only, Now BSNL Corporate Office has invited SEWABSNL CHQ on 14-11- 2017 for consultation and final decision.

In the earlier past,
a) Roster points Were ignored in the name of Restructuring cadre.
b) Rule of Reservation were neglected both in OTBP & BCR in Agreement with the then NFPTE &

FNPTO ( Now NFTE & NUBSNL) .
c) In NEPP also Reservation were denied in Agreement with BSNLEU.

And Now, In the name of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, both BSNL Management and Recognized Executive Association ( SNEA) trying to put a full stop for Reservation / relaxation forever.

Hence, We Appeal All the Executives of SC/ST Communities that It is the right time to intensively insist/demand your own Executive Association for inclusion of Reservation roster in the proposed CPSU Hierarchy. because they are having final touch with Management on 13,15 and 16th Nov 2017 or otherwise, if they are not ready to favour in writing in a true spirit, Kindly wake up and come out from the Anti SC/ST Executive Associations.

Join in SEWA BSNLl to safe Guard the interest of SC/STs working in BSNL. SEWABSNL is the only exclusive platform for espousing the grievances of total SC/ST employees irrespective of Cadres.

All Circle Secretaries/Circle Presidents are submissively requested to organise All for a Strong Massive Agitational Programme and to bring this conspiracy to abolish Reservation in Promotion in a concealed manner by BSNL CO and Caste minded Recognised Executive Association. Thanks. Click for the Letter submitted on CPSU Hierarchy

Objective:
The SEWA BSNL wish to remind our members that all our constitutionally guaranteed provisions are not implemented fully as the BSNL management is against it. Hence it is our prime duty to act wisely and see to it that these provisions are implemented without any diversions or lapses.
No private body or judicial body has the right to violate the constitutional amendments. At times, such amendments are violated through sly means and thereby we are deprived of our rights. So we should be vigilant always to spot out such violations and fight against them and enjoy our rights.
