All India strike by bank employees on September 26 & 27

Almost four lakh bank employees across the country are set to go on a strike on September 26 and 27 to protest against the merger of public sector banks.

“From September 26 to 27, four organisations representing four lakh officers across the country will go on strike. We are opposing the merger of public sector banks as it is against the general public,” R Sekaran, Secretary of All India Bank Officers’ Confederation’s (AIBOC), Tamil Nadu unit, told ANI.

Mr Sekaran accused the centre of taking “unilateral action” in the matter.

The bankers will also demand pending wage revision, reduction in service charges levied by banks on customers and ensuring adequate staffing.

“Four lakh banking personnel will participate in the strike and Rs. 48,000 crore worth of transactions will be affected in a day,” Mr Sekaran said.

“We are fighting for the people. Going on strike is our last resort. We made several agitations but to no avail. Public sector banks should continue to exist,” said Mr Sekaran
