Total and Massive success in Yesterday’s One day Strike:

SNEA Punjab Circle congratulates one and all for the total and massive success of Yesterday Strike in Punjab Circle.The Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL led by the unions and associations of BSNL have created a new history and registered their combined and strongest protest. They have told the government and the BSNL Management in no uncertain terms that, they will not tolerate such hypocrisy when one set of BSNL managerial employees have got pay as per 7th pay commission and others which are absorbed employees are being deprived off. The success of this strike also indicates that more serious forms of struggles, including an indefinite strike, will become imminent. They have shown their determination to settle wage revision and pension revision, superannuation benefits and restoration of trade union rights. The fact that some unions and associations are not with the employees in tomorrow’s strike, has not created any hesitancy. A new zeal and enthusiasm are seen among the employees in fighting against the injustices, SNEA PB Circle congratulate all the DS/COB/CWC members and activists for making this strike a grand success.
