Bank strike: Services to be affected as 9 unions call for strike against Vijaya, Dena, BoB merger

Bank services will be affected today as nine bank unions, with close to 1 million employees, have again called for a nation-wide bank strike against the proposed merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with Bank of Baroda (BoB). This is second bank strike within a week against the merger of these state-owned banks. Before this, the state-run bank unions had conducted strike on December 21. Most of the state-owned banks have already informed their customers about the bank strike call given by the unions, but banking and ATM services could still be affected due to holidays.
