Bank employees to go on two-day nationwide strike from June 6

Banking services are likely to be affected as employees of public sector banks across the country will go on a two-day nationwide strike from August 6 to press for wage hikes and other issues.

There was a meeting between employee unions and the Indian Banks Association (IBA) in the presence of the Chief Labour Commissioner. However, it failed to yield any result, United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) Convener C H Venkatachalam told PTI.

"We are going ahead with the strike," he said, adding that the IBA has further reduced the rate of wage hike from the proposed 17.5 per cent to 13 per cent.

At the same time, the IBA further did not concede demands on pension and appointing dependants of deceased employees on compassionate grounds, he said.

Thus, employees are forced to strike work as the IBA continues its stiff stance, he said, adding that the legitimate demands are being neglected by the managements of banks, leading to hardship for customers.

The UFBU is an umbrella body of nine bank employee unions of the country and claims to have members from public, private and foreign banks.

As many as 10 lakh employees, including officers, will participate in the strike, affecting services in about 60,000 bank branches in the country, the UFBU claimed.

Due to fixing the increment date as 1st July some person has faced great hardship whose DNI was between Feb. to June and retied on 30th June they have not got increment in on implementation of 6th CPC and also before retirement though they have copmleted 12 months period and ultimately remained looser for one increment.In such type of cases the peroid from Feb. to June2006 and similar period before retirement should be considered to club togther and if total period falls more than six months the increment should be allowed.
