Bank Strike on 7 Sept NationWide Bank Employees Strike
« on: August 31, 2010, 12:04:40 PM »

Public sector bank employees will go on a nation-wide strike on September 7 to protest the issue of new bank licences to private sector banks.

“Around 10 lakh bank employee from 27 public sector banks, 18 foreign banks, 26 private, 82 regional rural banks and 1,721 co-operative banks would be participating in this strike,” All India Bank Employees Association’s (AIBEA) General Secretary Vishwas Utagi said.

The bankers are also demanding an increase in the number of public sector branches through expansion from the existing 40,000 to 1 lakh.

The AIBEA has also conveyed its decision to Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and the Indian Banks Association (IBA), Utagi said.


Eight central trade unions INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, AIICCTU, TUCC and LPF, after a convention held in New Delhi last month, had called a general strike on September 7 to protest “price rise, disinvestment in public sector banks, huge job losses, rampant violation of labour laws and lack of adequate protection to workers in the unorganised sector.”

AIBEA claims representation of around 9 lakh bank employees across the sector.

There are 27 PSU banks, 18 private banks, 82 regional rural banks and 16 foreign banks in the country, besides around 2,100 co-operative banks.
