Bank employees will also join the nationwide strike called by Central trade unions on September 2 to protest the ‘anti-labour’ policies of the government.

All India Bank Employees Association general secretary C H Venkatchalam made a statement in this regard on Thursday.

“Five lakh bank employees and officers will join the all India general strike on September 2, 2016, to protest the Central government’s anti-people economic policies and anti-worker labour reforms,” he said.

The association has supported the 12-point charter of demands submitted to the government by the trade unions. These include withdrawal of ‘anti-employee’ labour laws, including giving employers the right to “hire and fire” and “stripping the workers and trade unions of their rights”.
