GS and AGS Com. Sukhvir Singh meets Director (HRD) and discusses the issues that the BSNL Management is unnecessarily creating by tampering with the recruitment rules for regular promotion for JTOs to SDEs. They stated that such tampering was uncalled for and will be resisted with all our might. Director (HRD) promises to hold detailed discussions on the subject on 5th Oct 2005 (Wednesday). 

It is understood that BSNL Management has decided to implement regular promotion with attendant conditions requiring 70 marks for promotion for JTOs / JAOs to SDEs / AOs etc. It is a clear indication of the intention of the Management to deny our membership with any promotion at all. This dastardly act will be resisted by the Associations with all the force at its command. Activists /leaders/Office Bearers may be seized of the gravity of the issue and prepare thoroughly for launching intense Trade Union actions failing which the future of our entire membership will be in peril. A meeting of the CHQ Office Bearers is being held at Bhopal on Oct 16, 2005. Get ready, prepare yourself with all the resources at your command.
