New Organization for Contract Labours in Telecom Sector:
National Federation of Telecom Contract Labours (NFTCL), a new
organization was already launched as per the guidance of the Central leadership of
AITUC. This organization is unique as it is the only organization which covers all
the contract labours in Telecom sector both private and public.
The NFTCL’s first state conference of Tamil Nadu was held on 23/02/2014
and Kerala state conference is scheduled in the last week of April at Earnakulam.
In Maharastra and Bengal states already efforts have begun to hold the respective
state conferences. In July 2014 a National seminar on “The Working condition of
Contract Labours in Telecom sector” will be held at Chennai. In Punjab and
Karnataka states also comrades are planning to form NFTCL soon.
At a recent meeting in Cuddalore (Tamil Nadu) Com. M.Appadurai, Ex MP
and Vice-President of AITUC introduced the New flag of the NFTCL in his
capacity as the president of the NFTCL Tamil Nadu state unit. The most exploited
section of workers to day in Telecom sector are our Contract labours. As per the
data released nearly 60 percentage of Telecom workforce is on contract only. The
system of contract labours is too high in our sector. Few organizations which at
present exist for the contract labours in BSNL only cover the BSNL contract
labours. But NFTCL covers all the contract labours who are working in both
private and public Telecom companies. It is the duty of every one of us to
strengthen and help this organization to grow leaps and bounds throughout the
