Representation of Bank and Insurance Employees
The Government has received representation/memorandum from employees of nationalized banks and Government Insurance Companies regarding their salaries, pension and other emoluments due to the employees/officers.
The wage revision exercise in respect of employees of PSBs is undertaken through a bipartite negotiation process between Indian Banks’ Association (IBA), representing management of banks who have mandated it to negotiate on their behalf and the Unions/Associations of bank employees. The last meeting between IBA and Unions/Associations took place on 13.6.2014.
In respect of the current wage revision of insurance companies, Central Government has already requested Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) and General Insurers’ (Public Sector) Association of India (GIPSA), coordination body of four public sector general insurance companies and General Insurance Corporation (GIC) to start wage revision consultation with their employee’s unions/associations.
