Bank officers call for withdrawal of extra co-operation by strictly observing office hours
The emergent meeting of the Executive Committee of All India Bank Officers' Confederation [AIBOC], the largest body of supervisory class in the banking industry, discussed the major issue of wage revision for officers, working conditions of officers and many other issues including stringent action against Bank loan defaulters.
In the meeting which held on October 08, 2014 at Delhi, the Executive Committee (EC) was critical of the adamant stand of the Indian Bank's Association (IBA) towards the reasonable demands of the officers despite their immense contribution immensely to the growth of the industry and implementing successfully the policies and programmes of the Government including the recent Prime Minister's 'JAN DHAN YOJANA' which has created a record of sort in financial inclusion.

AIBOC's General Secretary Harvinder Singh The Executive Committee (EC) unanimously decided to launch an agitation programme to draw the attention of the Government towards adamant attitude of IBA and the need to meet the genuine demand of salary revision for officers. The EC has decided that w.e.f. 13th October, 2014 officers will:

Withdraw extra co-operation by strictly observing office hours,

  • Not attend office on Sundays/ Holidays and for extended office hours,

  • The EC also chalked out other action programmes like holding Dharnas/ Rallies/ Demonstrations/ Meetings at major centre and State Capitals.

    The Committee has also authorized the leadership to decide about minimum two days strike along with other constituents of UFBU in the first week of November and indefinite strike if above measures do not evoke any positive response from the IBA/Government.

    It may be noted that in spite of submitting a 'Charter of Demands' on 30th October, 2012, the negotiations have not reached any satisfactory conclusion even after two years despite showing flexibility by Officers' Organisations.

    In contrast, the IBA remain adamant to the reasonable demands of officers. Today the Bank officers' wages are the lowest as compared to those in Central Government/ other PSUs, which has become a major hurdle for PSBs to attract and retain talents to the industry.

    The Bank officers are demanding parity in wages with the officers in Central Government, if not better. AIBOC EC was of the view that the same has to be achieved at any cost in the interest of banking industry.
