All India Bank Employees’ Association (AIBEA) and Bank Employees’ Federation of India (BEFI) have supported the strike, which has impacted banking operation where these two unions are strong.

Banking operations were affected in some parts of the country on Tuesday as a section of employees did not work in solidarity with the two-day nationwide strike call given by 10 central trade unions to protest against alleged anti-labour policies of the Narendra Modi government.

However, the operation in State Bank of India and private sector banks remained unaffected as other seven unions in the banking sector are not part of the strike.

Many public sector banks have already informed their customers about the likely impact on services if the strike materialized.

“If the strike materializes, a section of the bank’s employees may take part in the proposed strike on the said dates, in which case, the normal functioning of the branches/offices of the bank may get affected,” Indian Bank said in a statement.

A two-day strike on January 8 and 9 has been called by the central trade unions against the alleged repressive policies for workers adopted by the government.
