Make the Two days nation wide Strike a huge Success everywhere:
The All Unions & Associations of BSNL has called for two days Strike throughout the country on 12/13 December 2017 in which lakhs of employees and executives will actively participate mainly to compel the Government/ Management to effect Third Pay revision from 01-01-2017 and withdraw the ill advised decision for the formation of a separate tower Company for the nearly 66000 mobile towers. Although the Unions/ Associations for a very long time persuaded both the government and management on their justified demands by holding peaceful rallies/ demonstrations/ Human Chain programmes for the past several months besides demanding exception clause for the pay revision as was done by the past / last PRCs the appeals of the Workers have fallen on the deaf ears of Modi government which is happily writing off the huge loans defaulted by Big Corporates . Its insistence of the conditionality of earning continued profits for the past three years is actually a ruse to deny us the justified pay revision and pension revision. Trade union movement shall not allow the evil design to succeed. This time very effective coordination and active preparations have already been taken place which will ensure 100% success of the two days Strike in the whole of the country and particularly in Chennai Telephones circle. The last minute appeal of the Administration/ Management to withdraw the strike decision is ritual with out any positive action on the demands raised by the BSNL unions and associations. Hence we need to make the Strike action a huge Success so that at least after our Strike both the government and Management take positive decision on all our demands. I greet all our employees and executives on the eve of the historic strike.
