Section of bank employees to go on strike on Feb 28
New Delhi: Seven employees' unions of PSU banks have given a call for strike on February 28, demanding stringent measures to recover bad loans and opposing outsourcing of non-core activities to private sector.

"Seven bank unions have given strike call for stringent and effective measures to recover bad loans of banks and unilateral imposition of Khandelwal committee recommendations," All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) General Secretary C H Venkatachalam said.

Besides, the unions are opposing banking sector reforms and outsourcing of jobs, he said, claiming that about 8 lakh employees and officers, affiliated these unions would participate in the strike, he said.

He claimed even the staff of State Bank of India would participate in the strike.

There are about 87,000 branches of public sector banks across the country. The state-owned lenders control about 75 percent banking business.

Meanwhile, State Bank of Mysore said in a statement that if the proposed strike materialises, normal services rendered to the bank's customers may have to be curtailed.

The Centre-appointed Khandelwal panel suggested a slew of measures, including outsourcing more and more non-core activities in a time-bound manner.

Also, the standard of recruitment, including methodology and content for testing, has to be raised. Testing of computer skills will be mandatory for both officers and clerks, the panel recommended.

The Khandelwal committee on human resources (HR) also suggested that the minimum qualification requirement for clerks and sub-staff is proposed to be graduation and class 10, respectively.
