Bank unions decide to join national strike on Sept 2

Friday, August 19, 2016

Nearly 5 lakh bank union workers and officers are set to join the strike called by trade unions on September 2 to protest against what they call anti-people policies of the Modi government and labour reforms. "There have been increasing attacks in the banking industry and the government has been taking steps which are anti-people. It's attempting to privatise state-run banks and merge associate banks with State Bank of India. It is also looting the public money in the name of  bad loans," All-India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) General Secretary C H Venkatchalam said yesterday.

On March 30, all central trade unions had given a one-day national general strike call on September 2 to protest against the Modi government's "unilateral labour reforms and anti-worker policies". The RSS-backed Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) has, however, decided to keep away. Last year too, the unions had gone on strike on September 2 to oppose the amendments in labour laws by the Centre as well as states, saying their 12-point charter of demands had not been met.

The unions have been opposing certain proposed labour law amendments that allow hire and fire, make it tougher to form labour unions and dilute existing social security available to workers at different fora.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You are doing well in your career and profession. Yet a feeling of unease creeps in. This is just a passing phase. Relationships in the family and around your close circle have to be nurtured with tenderness. It may mean a little give and take, which you are capable of, as you have an intensely humane side to your nature.
