A section of bank employees will go on strike on September 7 in protest against the disinvestment policy of the government and the price rise.

Members of the All-India Banks Employees' Association (AIBEA) are supporting the nation-wide strike call given by various trade unions, said AIBEA General Secretary C H Venkatachalam.

As many as eight central trade unions, including CITU, have announced a nation-wide strike against major issues like price rise, the disinvestment policy of the government and violation of labour laws.

Venkatachalam said the strike call is against banking sector reforms and mergers of public sector banks, among other issues.

In a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange, Dena Bank said if the strike materalises, a section of the bank's employees may take part, in which case normal functioning of its branches or offices may be affected.
