Banking Services Likely To Be Hit On January 8, 9: All You Need To Know
NDTV, January 06, 2019

Here are 10 things to know about the bank strike:

1. "In the event of AlBEA and BEFI proceeding on strike on January 8-9, 2019, the functioning of bank's branches/offices in some of the zones may be affected," state-run Bank of Baroda said in a separate regulatory filing.

2. Allahabad Bank said the issues and demands are of industry-level, and the bank strike call is also given at industry-level.

3. "If the strike takes place, the functioning of branches of the bank may be affected. The bank is taking all the necessary steps in terms of the existing guidelines for smooth functioning of bank's branches/offices on the day of strike(s), in the event the strike materialises," Allahabad Bank said.

4. Private sector lender Karur Vysya Bank said, "If the strike call materialises, the workmen of our bank may take part in the proposed strike on the said date, in which occasion the normal working of the branches/offices of the bank may get affected during the day."

5. Ten central trade unions have also called for a nationwide general strike on January 8-9 against alleged anti-worker policies of the Centre, and have placed a charter of 12 demands before the central government.

6. This is the third bank strike in less than a month. Earlier, on December 26, 2018, banking services at branches of state-run banks across the country were hit following the bank strike by unions against the proposed merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with Bank of Baroda.

7. The strike that time was called by the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) -- an umbrella organisation of all nine unions including the All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC), AIBEA, National Confederation of Bank Employees (NCBE) and the National Organisation of Bank Workers (NOBW).

8. On December 21, 2018, an officers' union of state-run banks, All India Bank Officers' Confederation (AIBOC), observed a day-long strike to protest against the merger and also demanded immediate settlement of wage negotiations.

9. The government had in September proposed the merger of Bank of Baroda, Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank, which was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on January 2, 2019.

10. The merged entity will become the third largest bank in the country, after government-owned State Bank of India and private sector lender ICICI Bank. The merger will come into force on April 1, 2019, the government said in its statement. (With inputs from agencies)
