All the bank employees in the country have called for a 2 days strike i.e. on January 31 and February 1, 2020 under the banner of United Forum of Union Banks (UFBU) for demanding fare wage revision settlement.
The other demands like scrap new pension scheme, updation of pension, improvement of family pension, defined working hours for officers and other issues.
The UFBU is an umbrella organisation that includes 9 bank unions such as All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC),Â All India Bank Employees AssociationÂ (AIBEA) andÂ National Organisation of Bank Workers.
Despite more than 30 months of negotiations, IBA is unable to settle the wage hike on a reasonable basis as well as other important demands raised by the unions and UFBU has given a call for 2 days strike action to highlight our demands,â€ said Jaiwant Gurway, General Secretary, EMBEA and Treasurer of UFBU.
He requested all the members of the unions to assemble in front of Bank of India, Kingsway or SBI Kingsway at 10.30 am on January 31 for demonstrations and thereafter the bank employees will take out a rally which will pass through Kasturchand Park and Samvidhan Chowk and gather at Allahabad Bank, Civil Lines for the mass meeting.
Leaders will address the agitating employees. He also appealed bank employees to make the strike a grand success.
