Editorial: October, 2014
Our struggle turns the tables decisively – revives
critical frozen issues of standard scales, 30% superannuation, CPSU hierarchy and paves way for their resolution.
Critical HR issues,
particularly the ones relating to young and talented folk recruited in BSNL,
virtually forgotten and lying in deep frozen state for the last about two
years, got a fresh lease of life through our recent struggle when BSNL
Management in principle agreed to initiate continuous discussions for their
resolution. Our struggle thus opened a window of opportunity for resolution of
these issues which have been lying in deep slumber for a pretty long time. If BSNL Management is serious
and honest enough this time to continue the dialogue in right earnestness till
resolution of issues is comprehensively addressed, we, on our part, would be
equally honest, if not more than BSNL Management, to maintain complete
industrial peace and tranquility. If BSNL Management tries to dither and
betray, the way they have done thus far, we will be as ruthless and unrelenting
as anything this time.
BSNL Management has to
clearly recognize and understand that resolution of issues of extending
standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits and introduction of time bound
functional promotions will go a long long way in
changing the complexion and direction of the Company. Addressing these issues
will surely mean correction of serious HR policy aberration that has been
inordinately delayed and that will inevitably have quite significant and far
reaching consequences in so far as revival of the Company is concerned.
We too do understand and
recognize the constraints that BSNL faces on account of resource crunch, but we
are pretty confident of coming out with very viable alternatives to offset the
repercussions that BSNL Management anticipates while taking final call on these
crucial issues. Besides, management will make a serious error of judgment if it
undermines the huge motivational impact that resolution of these issues will
have on the demoralized working force. Management should factor in the huge positive
impact that resolution of these issues will undoubtedly have on resource
generation and should not ignore this hard fact.
In case Management once again betrays, we
are more than willing to join hand with forces that have hot and ethical blood
of struggle running through their veins. If that materializes, good enough, otherwise we are quite determined and fully
equipped to carry forward the struggle singlehandedly till we reach our
destination of comprehensive resolution of these HR issues of paramount and
strategic importance. We do have sufficient organizational capacity and
resilience to take on such formidable challenges singlehandedly. Our past
stands out an eloquent and unquestionable testimony to this hard reality.
At the end of the day, BSNL Management has to
clearly understand that Human Resource is not garbage the way it has been
treating it. If it treats talented Human Resources as garbage,
end product would be surely garbage and that is clearly visible in the Company
as of now. The bottom line is that Human Resource is
greatest asset provided one acknowledges this underlying and irrefutable fact.
Human resource has to be spotted, harnessed, trained and accordingly deployed,
motivated and optimally utilized. Professional HR managers exploit HR to the
hilt and convert it into goldmine. That is where professionalism In HR counts
and makes a big difference between orthodox and modern innovative approach.
BSNL Management continues to be captivated by deep traditionalism. We and the
Company is a direct victim of this deep rooted conservatism of BSNL Management.
Saddest part of the whole story is that even in this era of digital world when
professional HR Managers are working day in and day out to enforce radical HR
motivational policies, BSNL Management has not been able to come out of deep
conservatism and move even an inch forward.
All said and done, Comrades,
we wholeheartedly congratulate you for your spontaneous and overwhelming
response to the recent call given by CHQ. Your enthusiasm and readiness to
struggle has enthused central leadership and it added confidence and has
undoubtedly opened a serious window of opportunity to reopen issues that have
been lying in deep slumber for more than two years. In
case BSNL Management is once again found to be wanting in its approach, we
shall not lose even a minute in calling upon you to come out on the streets
ruthlessly. For that, maintain complete organizational preparedness.
