AUAB would be compelled to take recourse to strike - The AUAB cautions the Addl. Secretary (T), DoT:
A section of unruly JCLs gheraoed DE Circus for their various demands which are beyond the scope of DEs. The gherao continued upto 9pm. DGM /NWO-P(Central ) also tried to convince them to withdraw the uncalled for gherao in vain. Ultimately with the intervention of GM(NWO-BA-East) & PGM(CFA) and intimation to the police authority gherao was withdrawn as per information given by CS & OS(E). We condemn such atrocities & confirm that such act is not sponsored /supported by any of the recognised unions/associations & request our members & all other executives to take this kind of hooliganism into the knowledge of competent administrative authority & FIR may be made as per directions of GM(HR) which is already available in Medha. (see order dt 15.05.2017 )
In this connection we request upon executive fraternity to remain united at the place of occurrence of such incidences so that any of the executives may not feel alienated. CS will talk to the CSs of other sister associations /unions in this regard immediately.
Today OS(E),CS & ACS met Sr.GM(HR & Admin) and discussed the following:
1) Immediate release of Diary procurement order for 2019: GM informed that our letter has already been sent to DGM (MM) for necessary action. We hope it will be issued within a few days.

3) Withdrawal of VR of Subrata Saha : GM informed that the application has been forwarded to CGM/CTD ,soon the withdrawal will be allowed.
4) Issue of JCL scheme extension order: We convinced GM that this extension is extremely necessary for issue of W/O to the vendors. GM appreciated our concern & informed that necessary steps regarding this already under active consideration & assured that payment of JCL wages bill will not be hampered.
5) CGA 2018 & concurrence thereof: We informed GM to convene CHPC meeting at the earliest. Now,the vacancy of Group C in CTD is 95 & that of Group D is -16. The R&E section of CTD communicated to GM(Establishment)/BSNL CO for giving concurrence of clubing post together for compassionate ground appointment of CTD in line with their guidelines issued in 2016. But no answer is received till date. We requested GM to communicate with GM(Establishment)/BSNL CO without further delay so that the ailing eligible candidates may get CGA soon. GM appreciated our view & assured to take early steps.
Time is running out and strike will become unavoidable - AUAB meeting decides to inform the government........
However, the meeting came to the conclusion that, no substantial progress has come on the issues of 3rd Pay Revision and Pension Revision. The meeting also came to the assessment that the time available for the settlement of demands is only upto February, 2019 and that the announcement for Parliament elections may come any time in March, 2019. Once the elections are announced, the Code of Discipline will also come into effect and no demand could be settled thereafter.
In view of the above reasons, the meeting decided to convey to the government that, the AUAB would be compelled to give call for the strike. The meeting also decided that the AUAB should meet the Additional Secretary, Telecom, in person, and communicate this.
AUAB writes to the Hon'ble Minister of State for Communications - Informs strike will become unavoidable due to the delay in the settlement of the 3rd Pay Revision........<<<<Click here for letter>>>>
