16 August, 2014:Karnataka Casual /Contract Workers on the forward March


While I was attending the District Conference of BSNLEU Bangalore Circle Conference, BSNLCCWF Circle Secretary, Com. Mahantesh, Com.Cheluvaraj, All India Vice-President and a few other leaders of the BSNLCCWF came and met me. We discussed about the issues and the organisation.

Karnataka unit, through continuous struggles have advanced much and the management and the contractors have been compelled to concede the rights of the workers and implement minimum wage, EPF, ESI etc. The victimised workers have been taken back. There are still some more issues to be settled and those are being attended to by the union. Com.C.K.Gundanna, Circle Secretary BSNLEU is the Circle President of BSNLCCWF and all help is being given for the settlement of the issues. My Hearty Congratulations to the Karnataka Comrades!


Com.Mahantesh remitted Rs. 15,000/- towards the CHQ quota of membership. CHQ is financial difficulty and this remittance has come in time of need. We hope other units also will remit their quota without delay.
