DPE and DOT was ready to accept E2 and E3 scale with cascading effect from last four years . E2 and E3 scales alone not acceptable to them(DOT&DPE) due to legal complication in approving them. Real fact is that DOT or DPE cannot barred DOT recruitees executives from higher scales . but some Associations misguided the all executives and misrepresented to BSNL Management. Destructive approach of Majority Association in all-most all HR matters lead to financial loss of employees and survival of BSNL . Negative approach in case of list no 8 (SDE’s to DE’s), DE’s to DGM’s, AO’s to CAO’s promotion are real face of this Association . This so called Majority association work for the vested interests not for the overall interests of the Executives. Retired officers do not have any right to discuss the policy and HR matters. It is true facts but in almost all circles retired office bearers of this Association are playing major role on HR policies . So we requested stop sermon to others but implement it for himself first. TOA BSNL is in favour of E2 and E3 scale from day one still pursuing it .

The Union government has proposed a labour law amendment in a bid to give statutory backing to central trade unions. Public comment has been invited till August 10. The proposed Bill has provisions for recognising central TUs by various government departments, at both the central and state levels. There are provisions empowering the central government to frame rules for recognising unions and resolving disputes arising out of it. Unions are not recognised under the Trade Unions Act, originally enacted in 1926. The office of the chief central labour commissioner conducts a verification drive of the membership, based on which the labour and employment ministry gives them the status of central TUs, keeping in mind their membership and presence across the states. There are criteria and a procedure. “However, there is no statutory provision for either recognition of a TU in industry or establishment or recognition of TUs at central and state level,” the labour ministry said in a note inviting public comment till August 10 on its proposal.
