The Union called off the 2 day Bank strike which would halt all bank-related services from 25th September midnight to 28th morning. The decision was taken when the bank unions met with the financial secretary Rajeev Kumar, in New Delhi on 24th September 2019.

Who initiated the strike?

The strike was initiated as a protest by four large bank Unions- All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC), All India Bank Officer’s Association (AIBOA), Indian National Bank officers Congress (INBOC) and National Organisation of Bank Officers.

Why are they protesting?

The strike was announced in protest to the Government’s new decision to merge public sector banks with larger PSU banks.

The strike was in accordance with the third round of merging announced by the Government.

Why was the strike called off?

When the Bank union met with the financial secretary today, they discussed the clauses of the merging and came to a “reasonable solution” which probed the council to take and decision and cancel the strike.
