The All India Bank Employees' Association (AIBEA) has given a call to its members to strike work on January 8, 2016.
AIBEA said that it has duly served the notice on IBA and all Bank managements about our call for strike on 8th January, 2016 against the violation of bipartite settlement, negation of collective bargaining and repudiation of our hard-won trade union rights by the managements of Associate Banks at the behest of SBI.
AIBEA desire to resolve the issues through bilateral discussions and that is why on two occasions we deferred the strike call. But our hopes have been belied. Associate Banks' managements and SBI feel that they are masters on their own.
"They do not want to respect Bipartite Settlement. They do not care for collective bargaining. They seem to be not subject to any reasoning or rationale except their whims. They seem to be more interested in confrontation than dialogue and resolution"
"They persist with the violations. They insist on CPS. They are not bothered about existing settlements that subsist. They do want to desist from their wrongful decisions. Hence revival of the agitation has been forced on us. That is why the call for All India Bank Strike on 8th January, 2016", AIBEA said in the press release.
