Sri. V. Senthil Vasan CGM A & N Circle,Port Blair has called the United Forum of Executive Associations for discussion on 24-08-2012 at 06.30 p.m. UF has placed the proposals based on our demands for amicable settlement. CGM has insisted again on his point of view to continue the new procedures what he has implemented after assumption of charge as CGM. United Forum has explained the practical difficulties in the new procedures and for the implementation of proposals of UF. CGM has put forth some modifications on UF Plan and shown a positive sign on this point.
Regarding the withdrawal of Transfer Orders issued on 22-08-2012 for 7 SDEs and one AGM(ADMIN) Sri. V T Gunasekaran, CGM has not agreed to revert any of the orders. We wanted the reversal of all the Transfer orders. CGM has not agreed. United Forum has demanded the relief of the STS Officers com. V T Gunasekaran AGM (Admin) and com. Baskaran DE. CGM has not committed to issue relieving order. Another round of discussion has to be held on this matter.
Com. Ranjit Bage SDE-Task Force, Port Blair was not sanctioned Ty Advance for official work in Hudbay Island which is very far away from Port Blair and therefore materials were also not transported. In this condition, he was called for explanation on 22-08-2012 for not carrying out the work in Hudbay Island. We demanded immediate withdrawal of the explanation called for from Com. Ranjit Bage SDE by the CGM. CGM wanted the report on this issue and assured for consideration.
The UF demanded to settle the HR matters and accomodation of CAOs of A & NCircle. CGM has assured to look into the matter. We hope that matter will be settled before the relief of Sri. V. Senthil Vasan CGM.
The meeting was concluded at 08.30 p.m. stating that UF will decide based on the minutes to be issued by CGM A & N Circle.
In continuation of our agitational programme, the Andaman & Nicobar BSNL Administration has issued Transfer order on 22-08-2012 to 7 SDEs including Com. Vinoth Krishna SDE, who is the Circle Secretary of SNEA(I) and one Sri. V. T. Gunasekaran AGM(Admin) who is the Circle President of AIBSNLEA . Com. V T Gunasekaran AGM (Admin) was not allowed to assume the charge on 22-08-2012 after expiry of leave in the same post as AGM (Admin.). But before assuming charge he was transferred to AGM-Task Force-Admin which is not existing in any of the Circle. This shows the vindictive attitude of the CGM, BSNL, A & N Circle, Port Blair.
CGM BSNL, A & N Circle has given reply on 21-08-2012 to the Notice issued by United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations justifying the collapses he has made. But we are not convinced on the reply.
On 21-08-2012 itself United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations has made agitational programme as detailed below and intimated the same to CGM BSNL, A & N Circle.
1. Wearing Black Badges as protest from 22-08-2012 until the demands are met.
If the demands are not settled withing 7 days, we will be forced to resort the following Trade Union actions for redressing our just and genuine demands.
1. Work to Rule until Demands are met
2. Full Day Dharna on 30-08-2012 at Telephone Bhawan, Port Blair.
Atrocities and Arrogant attitude of CGM Andaman & Nicobar Circle:
On behalf of United Forum of BSNL Executive Association, a memorandum has been given to CGM, BSNL, Andaman & Nicobar Telecom. Circle, Port Blair against irrational changes thrusted on the Executives. The extract of the Memorandum is furnished below:
United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations,
Andaman Nicobar Telecom. Circle.
Port Blair – 744 101.
No: UFEA/A&N TC/2012-13 Dated the 09-08-2012
The Chief General Manager, BSNL,
Andaman & Nicobar Telecom. Circle,
Port Blair – 744 101.
Sub: Withdrawal of New Operating Procedures - reg.
The General Body Meeting of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations of A & N Circle has been conducted on 02-08-2012. Based on the decisions taken in the meeting, it is pointed out that we strongly protest and urge upon you to withdraw the new operating procedures mentioned below which were implemented on the very next day of your assuming as CGM, A & N Circle.
1. Integration of different business vertical against BSNL Corporate Office guidelines
2. This integration has collapsed the smooth set up and function of the Circle and this has created a state of confusion in the working Style/Structure of officers and staff.
3. In disguise of bringing a fast reformation which is beyond human capacity with unrealistic target resulted in mental pressure, torture, Health hazard and depression.
4. Frequent review meetings, discussions and issuance of many instructional letters adding New Task/Targets every time , has caused high anxiety and stress among all the officers .
5. Financial irregularities in the name of development, violating the Corporate Office Orders/Rules and Regulations are highly objectionable.
6. When there is severe/acute shortage of manpower in all cadres, what is the necessity of reducing manpower from one group to adding in another group?
7. By means of bringing centralised file management for the whole circle, handling of the files by the respective sections is made very cumbersome.
8. The meetings are occupied by the CGM not giving chance to the Officers to express their suggestions/constraints, etc which is nothing but a Dictatorship.
9. Since the launch of the so called innovative sort of software package which are not validated by BSNL Corporate Office, Officers are spending more time for updating these packages in unproductive way than to show constructive, realistic progress of work.
10. Members of United Forum of Executives took a serious concern for not taking any decision to relieve STS Officers in time though they completed their tenure and being away from their family.
Therefore, it is strongly urge upon you for immediate reversal of all the new administrative reformations implemented by you since assuming of the charge of CGM, A & N Circle.
We hope that as a responsible Head of Circle, you will understand the feelings of all the officers and act upon to withdraw the new methodology adopted by you thereby inducing confidence, encouragement and healthy atmosphere for maintaining the harmonious relationship.
