A strike has been organized on behalf of the bank union today and tomorrow i.e. March 15 and 16 against the privatization of public sector banks. About 10 lakh bank employees will be involved in this strike. Earlier there were banks on Saturday and Sunday also. In such a situation, the impact of this two-day strike will be seen on the public. Some services will be disrupted mainly due to the strike.
Due to the strike, deposits, withdrawals, check clearance and loan approval will not be able to work in the bank. The ATM service will continue but there may be a shortage of cash. Banks will remain closed for the next two days, while banks were closed on Saturday and Sunday as well. Some banks, including SBI, have informed their customers through a message that there may be an impact on the functioning of the branch. However, necessary steps have been taken by the bank, which will have minimal impact on the people. If your account is in banks like HDFC, Axis, Kotak Mahindra, ICICI, then there is nothing to panic. The strike will not have any effect on private banks.
Announcement of privatization of two banks
The United Forum of Banking Union (UFBU), an umbrella organization of nine unions, has claimed in a statement that about 10 lakh employees and officers of banks will participate in the strike. Under the disinvestment program, the announcement of privatization of two public sector banks was announced in the next financial year.
3 phase conversation was inconclusive
All India Bank Employees Union (AIBEA) General Secretary CH Venkatachalam said that the meetings with the Additional Chief Labor Commissioner were inconclusive on March 4, 9 and 10, so we decided to go on strike. The members of UFBU include All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA), All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC), National Confederation of Bank Employees (NCBE), All India Bank Officers Association (AIBOA) and Bank Employees Confederation of India (BECI) etc.
