Chennai: Banking operations will be affected across the country on Thursday with about 4.5 lakh bank employees joining the nationwide strike called by the central trade unions, said a top official of the All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA).
The strike was called to protest against the “anti-people policies” of the Central government.
“Employees of 12 public sector banks, nine private banks, nine foreign banks, all Regional Rural Banks and most of the Cooperative Banks will be participating in the strike,” AIBEA General Secretary C.H. Venkatachalam told IANS.
According to him, employees of State Bank of India (SBI) are not participating in the strike, and similarly, officers in other banks are not striking work.
