Bank Employees Strike on 12th November 2014
UFBU have announced a all India token strike on November 12 to reiterate their demands for a wage revision. The decision was made at the meeting that was held in Bengaluru yesterday.
It has been more than two years since the wage revision agreement had expired. Following this, a number of meetings were held between the associations and the bank management over the new salary and increment contracts. The IBA didn’t accept the demand for a 25% salary hike. Instead, the management offered 11% hike. The negotiations failed.
Meanwhile, in order to stress thier demand for salary hike, Bankers are going to hold Protest Day – Badge Wearing – Demonstrations/Rallies at all Centres on the 17th and 30th of this month. On the 12th of November, all bank staff are going to hold a nationwide strike. If we still do not reach an agreement on salary hike, they are going to hold day-long relay strikes at each of the four regional zones – north, south, east and west, from December 2 to 5. If the IBA continues to ignore thier demands, then they will be forced to launch an indefinite strike. Announcements in this regard will be made in December.
UFBU said, everyone is aware that employees and officers in the banking sector are doing their best to serve the customers and implement various schemes of the Government despite innumerable hardships and difficulties. Yet, the genuine demand for adequate wage revision is being delayed and denied.
