06-09-2019 : Arbitrary approach will harm the PSU:- Of late the BSNL management is adopting arbitrary approach and attitude on issues without realizing that ultimately it will harm the Company. Arbitrary decision has been taken to withhold the salary payment of August creating panic and unrest amongst the staff. There has been no transparency on the part of management in this respect despite our best efforts and persuasion. Further, management has issued orders on 5th September, 2019 to update the service books of employees who have attained 50 years of age. It may be a routine affair but it is ill timed. There is enormous talks in social media about VRS, CRS and reduction in retirement age. The orders of 5th September have also disturbed and disappointed the employees. The NFTE has its history and we know how to protect the employees and fight out the injustices and highhandedness. The NFTE will resist evil designs with courage and wisdom. We cannot be taken for granted. Let it be clear. We sincerely appeal to management to desist from arbitrary approach and take union into confidence in the hour of crisis to run or not to ruin the bread earner, BSNL.

20-08-2019 : Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58 – hold protest lunch hour demonstrations throughout the country tomorrow the 21.08.2019. The AUAB has learnt reliably that the BSNL Board of Directors meeting is going to be held tomorrow the 21.08.2019, in which they are going to give approval for reducing the retirement age of BSNL employees from 60 to 58. We have been hearing for the past few months, about the proposal of the government to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. This is totally against the commitment given by the Union Cabinet in the year 2000, that government rule will be applicable so far as the retirement of BSNL employees is concerned. In view of this, we have to strongly protest the move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. Hence, the AUAB calls upon the entire Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL to hold lunch hour demonstrations tomorrow to protest against the proposed move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.
