New Delhi / Mumbai: If you are thinking of going to the bank for some work, then this news is of your use. In fact, from today, the work in public sector banks across the country will be affected, because about nine lakh employees of public sector banks have gone on a two-day strike from today. In such a situation, common people may have to face difficulties in handling the business related to the bank. The two-day strike (December 16 and 17) has been called by the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU).
Why have bank employees go on strike?
Bank union leaders said that this strike has been called against the government’s attempt to privatize two state-owned banks. All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC) general secretary Soumya Dutta said the conciliation meeting before the Additional Chief Labor Commissioner failed and the unions upheld their decision to go on strike.
This work will not be able to be done in public sector bank
Most banks, including the State Bank of India (SBI), have already informed their customers that banking services like check clearance and fund transfers may be affected due to the strike. Banks will remain closed on Sunday (December 19) due to a holiday after two days of strike. In such a situation, bank customers may have to face problems.
The proposal was given by the central government in the budget
Let us tell you that in the budget 2021-22, the central government had proposed the privatization of two public sector banks during this year. The government has also started its preparation. It is being told that the government is preparing to introduce the Banking Laws (Amendment) Bill 2021 in the winter session of Parliament.
