  • Public sector banks on strike, services affected

    Published on December 26, 2018

    Banking services in the public sector banks were affected today due to a strike by Unions against the proposed merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with Bank of Baroda.

    The strike has been called by the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) – an umbrella organisation of all 9 unions including the All India Bank Officers Confederation, the All India Bank Employees’ Association among others.

    However, branches of new generation private sector banks remain unaffected by the strike called by UFBU.

    This is the second bank strike in less than a week. Last Friday, an officers’ union of state-run banks observed a day-long strike to protest against the merger.
