29-04-2016 : Claims for from Truth:- Sequel to strike agreement on 08-09-2000 between NFTE – FNTO with DOT only Govt of India took Cabinet decision to grant Govt pension and Job security to employees absorbed in BSNL. The so called protest of E-3 (Namboodri) etc and leader of BSNLEU was only in air. E-3(N) etc had played no role in framing of Pension Rule 37A. Even they had not participated in the struggle of 6th to 8th September, 2000. The NFTE has never agreed to disinvestment or privitisation. It is BSNLEU wild allegations BSNLEU was opposed to FDI in Telecom Sector. What happened to that. The UPA Govt brought FDI in Telecom during the period CPM was supporting the Govt. NFTE’s main concern is to protect Job and future, Pension of employees. It will continue its efforts talks no tall talks and no about turns akin to BSNLEU.

27-04-2016 : Allegations baseless and unfounded:- The leaders of BSNLEU are making baseless and unfounded allegations that the NFTE agreed and accepted the formation of BSNL.

The propagandists were anxious and eager to form industrial union and assembled quickly at Vishakhapatnam to form BSNLEU instead of protecting the employees. The “BBNL” (Bharat Broad Band Nigam Limited) has been formed in 2012. Who formed this PSU?. A separate Tower Company has been formed in the BSNL. Who has formed the third PSU i.e. Tower Company?. Govt is the owner of BSNL, BBNL and Tower Company and these have been formed only by Govt. The NFTE’s efforts had been to protect the interest of employees

The NFTE promised change in year 2013 during last i.e. 6th verification for change after getting recognized. As a matter of fact the NFTE vide letter No.-TF-53, dt-16-03-2012 sent proposal for change of designation. In this we proposed junior engineer designation for TTA. At that time the then recognized union, BSNLEU, was insisting for associate engineer designation to TTA. It was then widely talked in no circumstance JE designation will be conferred on TTA. NFTE after recognition persued it vigorously and ceaselessly cited example that in Govt Sector as well as in some PSUs Diploma Holders are designated as Junior Engineer. The joint committee accepted, MC approved and it is how awaiting nod of Board. The viewers and readers should think and ponder why designation issue was not settled upto year 2013 and it could be resolved only in year 2015-16. NFTE has played its role in settlement and no reasonable man can deny this.

The second wage revision bought loss to employees (TTAs etc) in salary. Agreement had been on 68.8% instead of 78.2% IDA, HRA loss etc. The employees couldnot get PLI due to hide and seek game of BSNLEU.
