30-04-2013  :-   AIBSNLEA, VELLORE Branch conveys hearty wishes to Shri.R.Raja, DE, our District President, who is retiring on superannuation on today(30/04/2013).


               Our SSA administration fails to inform the officer about the date, time and venue of the departmental retirement function and he personally decided not to attend the function. GM, VLR, who is on leave, personally intervened and regretted for the delay and directly spoke to Shri.R.Raja and Shri.C.Arumugam, and requested to attend the dept. function and assured to be present  at the function and to honour Shri.R.Raja.


             Based on the GMs assurance, we attended the retirement function, which went smoothly, in the presence of GM, Vellore, as a guest. We strongly condem the attitude of the Administration, who fail to follow the normal procedures also. All are going to retire on one day. If this kind of attitude continues, they will feel the same on that day.

                 This Branch thanks the GM, Vellore, for his kind intervention and his presence at the venue.

10-06-2012: INDEFINITE STRIKE IMMINENT : There are only three more days for the historic indefinite strike to start. According to reports received by the CHQ, the strike is going to be a hundred per cent success. Spontaneous and massive preparations are going on throughout the country to make the strike a historic success. All the Unions and associations of BSNL are united completely to end the injustice being meted out to the employees. From the Management side there is no honest and worth mentioning attempt to avert the strike. After the 1st June discussion, management has not taken any step to resolve the crises. The conciliation that is going to take place with the Chief Labour Commissioner next Monday is not going to yield any result, unless the management comes forward to settle the issue. Hence, in all probabilities, the indefinite strike from 13th instant has become imminent. Hence, CHQ calls upon all the leaders and cadres to take all out efforts to make the strike a resounding success. CLICK HERE: <<Circular>>,, <<Badge>>, <<<Poster>> <Poster>>

13-12-2011:- Dear Comrades!

                            Yesterday talks with Director (HRD), bore no fruit. No sign of concern on the part of administration to settle the issues. Hence decision for strike stands. Let us make it 100% successful.

                            In Vellore SSA, Due to local problem the attitude of recognised union with the Executives is not been proper in dealing the cases. The AIBSNLEA and SNEA, Vellore decided to organize separately. Both the executives successfully conducted demonstration along with SNEA separately on 08-12-2011. Now for the reasons known to them, SNEA are going with BSNLEU even after our call. However, we going ahead with the all India call for the demands already notified.

                          All are requested to participate in the one day strike on  15-12-2011 en mass.

07-12-2011 :- It is understood that the suspension order to Shri.P.Gunasekaran, SSS, Tiruvannamalai, has been sent thro REGISTERED POST ON  07-12-2011, by the Administration. Hence the proposed agitation programs by the Joint forum of Associations have been deferred.

Our Circle secretary Shri.N.Veerapandian, is addressing the meeting about latest issues on local and All India. All are requested to participate without fail. 


25-11-2011 :- Shri.T.Ponnivalavan, SDE, Commercial, Tiruvannamalai, has been assaulted by Shri.P.Gunasekaran, Clerk, working under his control on 21-11-2011, evening by 16.30 hours. The SDE did a only mistake of asking the clerk, why he is late. The incident has been witnessed by another clerk and contract labour of that section and they only rescued the officer. The officer subsequently  admitted to Govt. Hospital, Tiruvannamalai after intimating the sequence of events to the DE, Tiruvannamalai, who was present in the management meeting at Vellore. The DE has also narrated the incident to GM, Vellore, in the presence of all DE/CAOs attending the meeting and GM, VLR also advised the DE, TRL to suspend the official immediately.

       The SDE  has also given written compliant to DE, TRL and the two witnesses also given their testimony on 22-11-2011. Instead of suspending the clerk immediately, DE, Tiruvannamalai, just forwarded the complaint and statement of witnesses to GM Vellore, with a comment to take department action against the erring official. Our president , secretary and other leaders went to Tiruvannamalai, to access the situation and  to meet Com.Ponnivalavan, who was admitted in the hospital. Preliminary enquiry report , with direction to take department action against the official has been sent by DE, Tiruvannamalai on 23-11-2011.

          Even after the  receipt of the report, the administration failed to suspend the official, due to wrong advice by some the officers and pressure from the BSNLEU. In mean time police authorities filed FIR and they themselves directed the administration to take action against the official. Even after this, the administration waited for the receipt of original Copy of the FIR,  refusing to accept a FAX copy. Due to repeated  pressure from the our Union, they suspended the official on 23-11-2011 evening. Click here for copy.

          Fearing  BSNLEU and heeding unwanted advices, the  suspension order is yet to be served to the official  but sent to the  other departmental section/ officers / officers. Subsequently, the administration even tried to   take back the suspension order copies from all the points.  Dear comrades, we wrote a letter to CGM, TN Circle, Chennai, explaining the sequence of events and the suspension order issued bases on the FIR could not be revoked without court judgement, with a copy to Circle secretary. Copy enclosed.  Our Circle secretary has also spoke to CGM, in this issue so many times.

         We want the administration,  to issue charge sheet to the official and to transfer him to some other station, as has done in other cases, to maintain  office decorum and peaceful situation. If the administration tries play some other tricks, WE, with the help of Circle union announce the agaitational program to settle our demands.


21-11-2011:-  Management Committee of BSNL has approved additional 5 increments with E1 scale for the JTOs who have joined BSNL after 1.1.2007.
