Normal banking operations may take a hit today as public sector bank employees will go on strike to protest against the proposed merger of associate banks with SBI and banking reforms announced by the government.
The United Forum of Banks Unions (UFBU), an umbrella organisation of nine bank employees and officers unions representing 8 lakh staffers, will go ahead with the strike, potentially affecting services like cheque clearances, cash deposit and withdrawal at branches and other facilities.
Most banks, including SBI, informed customers that banking services would be hit today due to the strike at all banks on “issue and demand to stop banking sector reforms”.
According to All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) General Secretary C.H. Venkatachalam, the conciliation meeting with the Chief Labour Commissioner on July 26 did not yield any positive results though UFBU is willing to reconsider the strike call if the government considers their demand and addresses it.
The unions were ready for meaningful discussion, but the government only tried to justify their present policy decision on banking reforms and hence, there was no meeting point.
Unions, which are protesting against FDI in the banking sector, are pressing for various demands, which include one not to privatise public sector banks and increase private capital in such banks. The unions are also opposed to the move to privatise regional rural banks and co-operative banks and consolidate and merge banks, among others.
