It will be a prolonged struggle as the issues are not so simple. So UF called upon all the Executives to gear up for a prolonged battle to get these issues settled, maintaining unity at all levels. Even though the CAT, Chandigargh judgment on pay scales is a very positive development, where BSNL admitted E2, E3 pay scales recommendation, our members should not become complacent as Hon courts don’t have the jurisdiction on such matters other than giving direction for implementation of standard pay scales. Our struggle only will lead to E2, E3 pay scales.
