National Federation for Telecom Employees (NFTE) has demanded that the management of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited should talk to the employees before second salary hike. They have also demanded a temporary hike of Rs 5,000 applicable from January 1, 2007 unless the issue regarding 'fair hike in salary' gets resolved.
The NFTE recently staged protest at BSNL’s corporate office. The employees were unhappy over recommendations of the sixth pay commission.
"We have been demanding to stop outsourcing of work. Instead, we are ready to learn new techniques. Our issue of pension is also pending for the last eight years. We also demand action against injustice done in transfers," said the employees
