FORUM TAKES DECISION TO GO ON INDEFINITE STRIKE, DEMANDING IMMEDIATE SETTLEMENT OF 78.2% IDA MERGER.
The meeting of the Forum, which took place today the 09-05-2013, has taken the historic decision to go on indefinite strike, demanding the immediate settlement of 78.2% IDA merger. The issue of 78.2% IDA merger was sent to the approval of DoT. However, the DoT, instead of giving it's approval, has referred the matter to the BRPSE ( Board For Reconstruction of Public Sector Undertakings).This is nothing but putting 78.2% IDA merger in the cold storage.
After discussing the issue threadbare, the Forum has decided to give call for the following agitational programme. Today's meeting was attended by com.V.A.N.Namboodiri (Convener) com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU, com.C.Singh, GS, NFTE, com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA, com.Prahalad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, com.Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, com.Suresh Kumar, GS BSNL MS, and com.S.P.Sharma, President, WRU.
1) Demonstrations on 22-05-2013.
2) Dharna on 05-06-2013.
3) Indefinite Strike from 12-06-2013.
CHQ calls upon the circle, district and branch level organisations to immediately swing into action to make the agitational programme hundred per cent success. The joint appeal of all the general secretires will be issued tomorrow.

Media Reports regarding VRS in BSNL
News has come in some newspapers today, regarding BSNL'S VRS plan. It is sensationally reported in those papers, that BSNL has proposed to send one lakh employees home, through it's VRS scheme. There is nothing new in this news. Every one knows that BSNL has already sent a proposal for VRS to the government more than a year ago. But the question is, who will give money required for implementing this VRS? It requires more than RS. 20, 000 crore. Moreover, after spending such a huge amount, BSNL will be saving only around Rs.3, 000 crore annually, in the wage bill. Hence, as per some reliable sources, the govt. is thinking, whether it is wise to spend such a huge amount for BSNL's VRS scheme.
Notice for Trade Union Actions to protest against non--implementation of Circle Council decisions.
