29-05-18 Meeting with Director (HR)---GS along with AGS Shri D P S Chaudhary & CS Shri Sunil Kumar met with Director (HR)  on 28-05-18 and discussed following issues--
  1. Clarification on redeployment of DOT recruited employees & inclusion of MTNL recruited employees in this option--

Association sought the clarification on the background of these orders of redeployment/deputation and terms and condition of redeployment. Dir (HR) clarified that when VRS proposal of MTNL management to reduce the staff cost was turned down by govt, than MTNL sent a proposal to DOT that 20% DoT recruited staff can be spared for deputing in other department/PSUs to reduce the staff cost of MTNL. He also clarified that this deployment will be purely on deputation, not permanent deployment/ absorption in other department/PSUs. After receiving the options from employees, MTNL/DOT will write to the departments/ PSUs in those places with the biodata of such employees to inform that these employees are interested to work on deputation, if any department/PSU selects these employees, than they can be relieved.  He also informed that  a committee of three GMs has been constituted to this process and decide which employees can be relieved.

But, in spite of lengthy arguments, Dir (HR) maintained that no Direct recruited officer will be considered for this deputation because they have been recruited for the MTNL with the terms and conditions of recruitment of MTNL unlike DOT recruited employees.

DGM(T) regular promotion-- Association requested Dir (HR) to issue the regular promotion list of DGM(T) before 31st May, so that officers who are going to retire this month can get regular promotion before their retirement. he said that GM(HR) is on leave and will tell her when she joins on 30th May to expedite the case so that orders can be issued before 31st May.

Term insurance policy & 30% Corpus--He informed that committee constituted for terms insurance is likely to submit its report in a week time and after which 30% corpus issue will be given to the same committee.

Revised entitlement/eligibility criteria for allotment of residential accommodation--We were raising the issue of payment of three times license fee by the looking after officers for the residential accommodation entitled for that post.

Day Long Dharana was organized at corporate office , New Delhi and Prabhadevi, Mumbai in support of   demands of Justice to the late Shri Manish kumar, compensation policy, social security by ensuring corpus for post retirement benefits,, terms insurance policy for all employees, safety of officers/ employees and also the improvement in work culture and work procedures in MTNL on 3rd May 2018, which was attended by large number of officers both in Delhi and Mumbai.. At Delhi, gathering was addressed by GS, MEA Sh V K Tomar, GS, MTNL MS Shri Dharamraj Singh & CS Delhi Shri Sunil Kumar. GS in his address said that these are the legitimate demands for which Association will fight to any extent to see the solution of these issues. He said that MTNL is working on adhocism and  there are no work procedures and proper policies for running the company. Management is working on short term policies as if MTNL is to be run for a short period. Quality of material is substandard and the approach of management is very casual in deciding the things and because of that incident like death of late Manish Kumar happens. He condemned the report of enquiry of the death of Manish kumar, which says that death was because of over enthusiasm of the officers. He said that all officers are required to be over enthusiastic to revive the company, but if management will use  this over enthusiasm for shielding their failure to provide safety and security to the employees than how MTNL will be revived. We have to fight against this thinking of the management.

 Shri Dharamraj Singh , GS MTNL Mazdoor Sangh assured full support his Union for the solution of these issues which are common for all employees and officers.

GS appealed the officers to participate in large number  in 8th and 9th May 2018 Hunger strike at Corporate office, New Delhi and Prabhadevi Mumbai for safety , security and social security of the officers..

Circle secretary and General Secretary apprised the house about agreement made with management on the issues raised by Forum of MTNL Unions and Associations of Delhi and Mumbai and also the Joint Forum of Retired Employees and Officers. CS & GS congratulated and thanked rank and file through the CEC for achieving lot of things through historical struggle of todays time.

GS elaborately explained how things could be achieved after long struggle and series of meetings and persuasion with Hon'ble MOC, Secretary, DOT and  CMD/ Dir (HR) MTNL. He explained that it is a historical achievement where we have made management and DOT agreed to settle many thing through this struggle with out any negative impact on the services of MTNL, which we never wanted for the revival and survival of the MTNL.

  1. We achieved fitment benefit of 2nd PRC with 73.8 % instead of 68.8 %, which is great achievement. All employees will get substantial hike in their salary and benefit in 3rd PRC and payment of pension.
  2. 3rd PRC recommendation by MTNL management. This is such an important issue which we dont want to loose at any cost, because as per DPE OM, MTNL is not qualified to implement 3rd PRC, but we are not responsible for today's condition of MTNL, that is why we are ready to fight with any authority in govt to ensure 3rd PRC implementation in MTNL. We are thankful that after our struggle, MTNL management has agreed to recommend to DOT to implement 3rd PRC after getting relaxation in affordability clause from cabinet and DOT also agreed to process the case for cabinet approval. We will fight upto last to ensure that all approvals are given by concerned authorities   
  3. Through our meetings with Minister,Secretary & CMD, we prepared ground for MTNL revival, which is most important issue for all of us. We are committed to fight to any extent to ensure revival of MTNL. Action in this direction will be visible shortly in the days to come
  4. Recommendation of MTNL management for pension revision as par 7th CPC, which is also very important issue to ensure pension revision.
  5. Stopping 25% cut in sanctioned posts of officers and employees--This cut was going to  badly affect the already worst promotion avenues of the officers. But now all DPCs will be conducted shortly without making any cut on sanctioned posts. Not only this, we have made CMD agreed to discuss to further improve the promotion prospects of the officers,
  6. 30% Corpus for post retirement benefits to the company recruited officers/employees and training increment issues were strongly raised by GS in the meeting with Secretary DOT, who noted these issues and said that there will be no discrimination in MTNL and BSNL, So know we have got DOT principally agreed to settle these issues at par with BSNL. Shortly these issues will be written and discussed with Secretary DOT and CMD MTNL.   
  7. After detailed discussion with CMD, he agreed to process the case of term insurance for the officers and employees who wants to get term insurence

Dear Friends it is the best result of  our present struggle.  It is the continuous process in the trade unions to fight and achieve and go ahead and than fight and achieve. Lot has been achieved and lot is still to be achieved. But now onward, we have to fight and work for MTNL revival. Don't be misguided by any force, but concentrate on improving the services of MTNL. We will shortly move to the areas to know the problems and suggestions and than Joint meetings with the MTNL Management and DOT to ensure MTNL revival.

Once again thanks and congratulations to one and all for this achievement.  We also thank to Hon'ble Minister of Communication, Shri Manoj Sinha, Secretary, DOT Smt Arunasunderajan & CMD, MTNL Shri P K Purwar, Dir (HR) Shri Sunil Kumar for agreeing many things and starting immediate action on the agreed points. Hope Board meeting will be held in second week of April and all agreed points will be approved in board meeting

CMD & Director (HR) briefed about the changing scenario in telecom industry and said that in this changing scenario, small telecom companies who are not offering pan India services are either closing or merging with big companies of pan India presence and in coming days only 3 or 4 companies are going to survive. So MTNL management is proposing merger of MTNL with BSNL for MTNL survival.

Management gave a power point presentation of the proposal of merger in which they have mentioned the history of MTNL and balance sheet of MTNL.  management was of the view that it is very difficult to survive MTNL being confined in two cities. keeping in view the opposition of BSNL for MTNL merger with  BSNL on the ground of loan liability and HR issues, MTNL management is trying to address these issues with following proposals. It was clarified by management that it purely a proposal of MTNL management for MTNL survival,  neither DOT/ BSNL or govt has asked for it

salient point of proposal are as under--

  1. Merger of MTNL with BSNL is not the proposal but necessity for both the companies
  2. Govt should take loan liability of 17000/- crore with the surplus land of MTNL worth about 20,000/ crore
  3. Pay parity of MTNL and BSNL employees with making higher pay of MTNL employees as personal pay to protect the pay of MTNL employees
  4. VRS on Gujrat model
  5. promotions and perks and allowances at par with BSNL
  6. optional voluntary retirement with increment of left out service upto maximum five increments.

Management has asked comments/ view points of Associations and Unions on this proposal. We will discuss amongst our self and respond on these issues.

more details will be shared shortly
