TN: Banking operations paralysed

Our Bureau


BANKING operations came to a standstill on Tuesday as employees and officers of all the nationalised banks, private sector and foreign banks, co-operative and regional rural banks observed a one-day strike.

Hailing the strike as a ``total success,'' the Secretary of the All-India Bank Employees' Association, Mr C.H. Venkatachalam, said about 10 lakh bank employees across the country, including staff from the Reserve Bank of India, struck work in protest against the Government's anti-people, anti-employee and anti-trade union policies.

The strike call given by the United Forum of Bank Unions was in coordination with the call given by the Central Trade Unions in the PSUs and other industrial units on a host of issues ranging from privatisation, infringement of trade union rights, a ban on recruitments and the Government's anti-people policies.
