Employees of SBI’s Associate Banks Strike Against Proposed Merger
SBI’s five associate banks went on a nation-wide strike against SBI’s proposal of a “forceful closure”.
- The board of State Bank of India (SBI) submitted a proposal to the Central Government on 10 May and sought an “in-principle approval” to start negotiations with its five associate banks.
- This was followed by a nation-wide strike of All Indian Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) in the five banks on Friday. The strike was to protest the “forceful closure and takeover” by SBI.
- AIBEA vice-president, Vishwas Utagi claimed that the forcible decision was in opposition to the suggestions of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
