Bank Unions Postpone Bank Strike

The 48 hour long bank strike slated for 26-27 September has been "deferred" by the public sector bank unions. The decision to defer the strike was taken after Union Seratory Rajiv Kumar offered some workable solutions. The strike which was earlier planned was to shut the banking networks for a consecutive four days, as the next two days of the strike were bank holidays. Even the fifth day, Monday, September 30, was half yearly closing, which would have adversely impacted customers and businesses. The bank unions  which were part of the strike were All India Bank Officers' Confederation (AIBOC), All India Bank Officers' Association (AIBOA), Indian National Bank Officers' Congress (INBOC), and National Organisation of Bank Officers (NOBO).
