Annual Conference of Karaikudi SSA Branch was held at GM Office building, Karaikudi on 08.04.2018. Com.Venkatesan, District President presided over the proceedings. DS Com.V.Mohandoss welcomed the gathering.

CS, CP, Com.S.Kamaraj, ACS, Com.P.Subramanian, DP,Trichy, Com.Mari, DS,NFTE (BSNL), Com.Boominathan, DS, BSNLEU, Com.Muthukumaran, Jt. Circle Secretary, FNTO and Comrades Krishnan & Manoharan from Trichy and all the members of Karaikudi branch were present in the meeting.

The PGM, Trichy, Shri.Sridhar, DGM (CFA) and Shri.Rajmohan, DGM(F) Karaikudi were invited by the District Association and they have also consented to attend the conference. But it is unfortunate that there was no representation from administration side.

The conference was conducted in a grand manner. Com.S.Kamaraj, ACS made an inspiring inaugural address and called upon the members to unite and fight against the atrocities of the members of the other Association, keeping key administrative posts in their hands against our members and also misguiding the PGM.

Com.Mari felicitated the conference, discussed elaborately about the mishappenings at Karaikudi, in absence of a regular GM at Karaikudi and the misuse of some officers using the situation. Also he thanked Circle Association for the settlement of many issues at Karaikudi.

Com.Boomi felicitated the conference and also shared the experience of united functioning of BSNLEU with NFTE (BSNL) and AIBSNLEA. Also he wished the unity of Executives and Non-Executives to be strengthened more to achieve third PRC and other pending issues.

Com.P.Tamilselvan expressed his thanks to the Karaikudi Comrades organized the meeting in a grand manner and also the outgoing office bearers for their effective functioning. Also he assured the fullest co-operation on behalf of Circle Association to the new body elected unanimously in the Conference.

CS narrated the role of AIBSNLEA at CHQ level as well as Circle level in the ongoing trade union action programme for third PRC and rolling back of Tower Corporation. He appealed to the comrades to maintain unity to fight for our demands but at the same time we cannot compromise the attitude of the other association in Karaikudi against our members. Offering lower grade in APAR to our members by one DE is a cowardice action using official capacity. It is wonder how a DE can be awarded as best when his subordinates are considered not up to the mark. The present DGM, who is expected to be neutral in staff issues, is functioning only as an office bearer of the Association to which he belongs. The best example is the posting case of Com.Karthika. Circle Association took up the case with the then CGM and she is posted at Karaikudi, not at SSA, but at CMTS. The local administration did not bother to lose one JTO at Karakudi, but very much particular about our member not posted to Karaikudi. CS appealed the new set of office bearers to be more vigil and fight against such things in future and Circle Association will go with the District Branch to any extent to safeguard the interest of our members. The latest developments in respect of cadre hierarchy, CPCs in all cadres are discussed in detail.

Com.Tamilmaran,JAO, Com.Yuvaraj,AGM and Com.C.Krishnan,JAO are elected unanimously as President, Secretary & Finance Secretary. Com.V.Mohandoss and Com.Venkatesan are the Assistant District Secretaries. The office bearer list contains majority of young JTOs and JAOs. Congrats to all.

The conference ended with vote of thanks by the new Dist. Secretary and a delicious meal in Chettinadu Style.  

Mrs.Kamala (77) mother of Com.Ravi, JAO Madurai expired today at 1130 hours . Funeral today at 1600 hours at his native place, Sivagangai. Our deepest condolences to the berieved family.
