On Tuesday, banking operations to some extent were affected in some parts of the country as a section of employees did not work in solidarity with 2-days nationwide strike call given by more than ten trade unions to show protest against alleged anti-labor policies of the BJP-led Modi’s government.
Bank Employees Federation of India (BEFI), and All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) have supported the nationwide strike, which has impacted the banking operation where both the unions are strong and influential.
However, banking operation in SBI (State Bank of India) and private sector banks have remained unaffected but other seven unions in the banking sector were not a part of the strike.
Many public sector banks already have informed their customers regarding the likely impact on services, if the nationwide strike materialized.
In a statement, the Indian Bank said that “if the strike materializes, a section of the bank’s employees may take part in the proposed strike on the said dates, in which case, the normal functioning of the branches/offices of the bank may get affected.”
The Central Trade Unions call for 2-days strike on January 8 and January 9 to show protest against the accused repressive policies for employees adopted by the government.
