The United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) has given notice of their decision to go on nationwide strike on August 22 to protest reforms in the banking sector and other issues, said a top union leader on Monday.
“We have given a strike notice. The strike will be on August 22 spread over the entire banking sector,” said All India Bank Employees’ Association (AIBEA) general secretary CH Venkatachalam. The strike notice was given couple of days back, he said. UFBU also urged the Indian Banks Association to expedite wage revision and other issues.
