We are getting reports from all over the country about the successful implementation of our 2 Days’ strike action on 31.01.2020 and 01.02.2020. We congratulate all our unions and members for this splendid unity and effective implementation of our strike call.
There has been a very large and enthusiastic participation of our members, particularly the younger generation of employees in the rallies, processions and demonstrations. This is a befitting reply to all the cynical propaganda against the young employees that they are not prepared for strike actions. This gives us the confidence that trade union movement in the banking industry will go from strength to strength in the days to come.
These 2 days’ of strike action is the culmination of our first phase of the agitational programme. Members are aware that we are fighting for our 12 points charter of demands as contained in our strike notice with the main demand to expedite the wage revision settlement which is due from November, 2017. We deserve a fair and satisfactory wage revision and the settlement to be reached without delay.
With the success of our strike, we hope that the IBA and Government will understand our resentment and come forward to conclude the settlement expeditiously
