Four -day bank strike from February 25
Expressing unhappiness over the long-pending wage revision talks with the Indian Banks Association (IBA), the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) announced on Tuesday that it was reviving its strike programme.
As both parties could not make headway in the talks in Mumbai, the UFBU decided to go on a four-day strike from February 25 followed by an indefinite strike from March 16.
The strike is being called at a time when Parliament will be in session to table the Railway and Union budgets.
The strike is meant to draw the attention of top government officials, said All India Bank Employees’ Association (AIBEA) general secretary C.H. Venkatachalam.
