Bank Employees' Assn call for nationwide strike on Nov.26

The All India Bank Employees' Association on Tuesday said it would be joining the one-day nationwide strike on November 26 called by central trade unions to protest against the government's anti-labour policies. Ten central trade unions, barring Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, will observe a nationwide general strike on November 26.

the All India Bank Employees' Association said in a release that "Lok Sabha in its newly held session has passed 3 new labour enactments by dismantling existing 27 enactments in the name of 'Ease of Business', which are entirely in the interest of corporates. In the process, 75 of workers are being pushed out of the orbits of labour laws since they will have no legal protection under the new enactment,"

 The association represents the majority of the banks barring State Bank of India and Indian Overseas Bank. In Maharashtra, around 30,000 bank employees from 10,000 bank branches of public sector banks, old generation private sector banks, regional rural banks and foreign banks are observing the strike, the release said.

The union said bank employees on November 26 will also focus on their demands such as opposition to bank privatisation, opposition to outsourcing and contract system, adequate recruitment, stern action against big corporate defaulters, increase in rate of interest on bank deposits and reduction in service charges.
