SBI, other bank employees to go on strike on February 29

New Delhi: With public sector bank officers threatening to go on strike on Monday, State Bank of India (SBI) on Friday said a section of its employees may take part in the protest scheduled for February 29.

In a filing to the BSE, SBI said, “All India State Bank Officers' Federation (AISBOF) being affiliated to AIBOC, will also participate in the strike.”

“Since the call is for nationwide all bank strike, our Bank will not be separately impacted, if the strike materisliases,” the bank said.

All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC) has threatened to go on strike to protest termination of PV Mohanan, General Secretary of Dhanlaxmi Bank.

AIBOC General Secretary Havinder Singh had recently said that members of the Confederation will go on one-day nationwide strike on February 29 as Mohanan, who is also AIBOC's Kerala State President, was terminated from the services of Dhanlaxmi Bank invoking draconian clause.

AIBOC is the apex body consisting of trade union organisations of supervisory staff members of many banking companies operating in India. The organization claims to represent over 90,000 officers from SBI and its affiliates.
