Mumbai, May 27 (UNI) Around 80,000 officers of the country's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) would go on a one-day nationwide strike on June 6, to press for their long-standing demands.
''The strike would be observed across the country, as so far we have not seen any statisfactory developments regarding our demands.
Government and the Indian Banks Association (IBA), have not taken any significant steps to resolve our issues, inspite of repeated requests from our side,'' All India State Bank Officers' Federation's General Secretary, G D Nadaf told newsmen here today.
Their demands include a review of the existing State Bank pension scheme, recruitment of adequate staff, termination of the contract system and regulated working hours for officers.
SBI management, by deciding to go ahead with the merger proposal of State Bank of Saurashtra, was not taking into account the concern of employees on the matter, Mr Nadaf said. Such mergers, between State Bank and its associates, would lead to several other difficulties for the employees and will definitely be met with nationwide protests from the unions,'' Mr Nadaf asserted.
