[09.03.2013]Hearty Congrats – BSNL issued order for Child Care Leave – a major achievement for the employees, and their united struggles.
BSNLEU had long been demanding that the “Child Care Leave”, that had been implemented for the Central Govt. employees, should be implemented for the BSNL employees also. This demand had been there in many struggles of the JAC/Forum. In the agreement signed on 12.06.2012, between the Forum and BSNL Management, it was agreed to implement Child Care Leave. However, BSNL Management dilly-dallied and delayed implementation of the agreement. In the National Council meeting held on 30.01.2013, the Staff Side severely criticized the Management, for the non-implementation of the agreement on Child Care Leave. We are glad that the Management has issued order on Child Care Leave, on the International Women’s Day. Hearty congrats to all. < >

Warmest Greetings on International Women's Day.
CHQ conveys it's warmest greetings to all, on International Women's Day. It is time for us to stand up and raise voice against all injustices being meted out to women.
[08.03.2013]The heroic struggles against corporatisation and NFTE's role of betrayal.
We are not surprised that the present leadership of NFTE, either do not know what happened at the time of Corporatisation, or they have forgotten it. Hence, it has become necessary for us to tell, what happened at that time. The following are the facts related with Corporatisation.< >
[08.03.2013]Corporate Office issued Clarification on Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) against 35% & 15% quota for promotion to the cadre of JTO to be held on 02.06.2013.< >
[08.03.2013]Rajasthan Circle conducts a very successful Convention of Branch Secretaries.< >
[07.03.2013]Truth is bitter. But NFTE should accept it.
NFTE has stated in it's website that BSNL is making Rs.10, 000 crore loss and that BSNLEU is responsible for it. We really sympathise with NFTE. They are searching for reasons to blame BSNLEU. Any way, we are thankful to them for starting a very good debate. But, NFTE friends should tell, how BSNLEU is responsible for the present pathetic condition of BSNL. On the other hand, we have ample evidence to prove that NFTE is responsible for the present condition of the BSNL and it's employees. Govt. created this corporation only with a view to privatise it. Hence, the present BSNLEU leadership fought against corporatisation tooth and nail. In the year 2000, we went on strike twice, opposing corporatisation. We warned the employees well in advance, as to what would happen to them if corporatisation is done. Whatever warning we gave, has proved to be correct today. But, what is the role of NFTE in the matter of corporatisation? NFTE supported it. NFTE helped the Govt. to bring in the corporation. After the formation of BSNL, as per it's agenda, Govt. has taken steps, one after another, to kill BSNL. Still BSNLEU is mobilising all the unions and associations and is fighting against the anti-BSNL policies of the Govt. BSNL employees know all these facts very well. That is why they are giving rock- like support to BSNLEU for the last 8 years.
[07.03.2013]Congrats - Child Care Leave approved by Management Committee
It is learnt that the Management Committee has approved the Child Care Leave, in it’s meeting, held yesterday the 07.03.2013. It has been the long pending demand of the JAC/Forum, that the Child Care Leave, implemented for the Central Govt. employees, should be implemented in BSNL also. Finally, agreement was signed on 12.06.2012, for settlement of Child Care Leave. However, it’s implementation had been delayed. Now, we are glad that the Management has decided to implement it. Again, this is a big achievement of the united struggle.

[06.03.2013]Hugo Chavez passes away
Comrade Hugo Chavez, the revolutionary leader of Venezuela, has passed away. He was 58 years old and was suffering from cancer. After becoming the President of Venezuela, he took firm action, against the multi national companies that were exploiting the oil resources of that country. Natural resources of Venezuela were brought under the government control by him. The revenue from those natural resources were utilized by Chavez to alleviate the poverty of the common people of that country. All those actions of Hugo Chavez, annoyed the US imperialism. It did every thing to remove Chavez from power. But with the massive support of the people of Venezuela, Chavez got elected as the President for four consecutive times. Today, most of the countries in the world are implementing the economic policies being dictated by the US imperialism. But, Chavez rejected those economic policies. He showed an alternative economic policy for the betterment of the working class. He successfully implemented it in his own country. Inspired by him, the entire countries in South America have rejected the dictates of the US imperialism and are following the alternative policies shown by Chavez. BSNLEU dips it’s banner and pays it’s respectful homage to comrade Hugo Chavez. He will ever remain as an inspiration for the working class movement, in it’s struggle against exploitations.

[02.03.2013]International Women's Day - Observe it in a befitting manner.
8th March is International Women's Day. It is the tradition of the Working Class movement to observe the Day, conducting seminars, meetings and similar such programme, for raising voice for the liberation of women. In our country, women are denied equal rights from time immemorial, and are being treated as second class citizens. Every day media report the atrocities being meted out to women, such as molestation, rape, dowry killings, etc., etc. The recent gang rape and murder of the Delhi para-medical student is only the tip of the ice-berg. Trade unions cannot remain insensitive to such atrocities being committed on women. Hence, the forthcoming International Women's Day deserves to be effectively observed by us. CHQ calls upon the Circle and District unions to plan and effectively conduct seminars, meetings, etc., to observe the Day. Reports and photos may be sent to CHQ for uploading the same on the website.
