According to a report by PTI, President of the AIBOC Sunil Kumar said that the associations meeting with the Chief Labour Commissioner on Monday has not yielded any result and this is why the association has not taken back their strike notice.
Demand for salary correction
The salary correction demand of the bank employees has been due since 2017. AIBEA's General Secretary CH Venkatachalam in a statement said that the Indian Banks Association (IBA) has not many commitments with regard to this. and so the notice for calling a strike stays. IBA's adamant attitude has forced the bank employees to go on a strike, he said adding that the work will get affected because of this.
He said that his appeal to the customers is to support the bank employees as this has been imposed on them by bank management.
