Again public sector bank employees threaten to go on strike on 27 June. On last Wednesday, employees of public sector banks threatened to go on strike on 27 June to press for the issues related to pension and the demand for five-days-a-week work. The United Forum of Bank Union (UFBU) which is an umbrella body of nine bank unions including All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC), All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) and National Organisation of Bank Workers (NOBW), all together decided to go on strike.
The demands included on updation and revision of pension for all pensioners and withdrawn of the national pension scheme and restore old pension scheme for all bank employees, AIBEA general secretary C H Venkatachalam said after the meeting of UFBU.
Soumya Dutta, AIBOC General Secretary said that about 7 lakh workers across the country would be participating in the strike, if the government and management of banks are not sensitive to the union’s demand.
Banking operation may be badly impacted if the strike materalises.
