THE UNITED Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) staged a demonstration in the City here today to protest the existing ban on appointments made on compassionate ground in the banking sector. The members of UFBU, an umbrella body of eight bank unions comprising bank employees and officials, demanded immediate appointments to be made on compassionate grounds.
They were demanding lifting of the long-standing ban with immediate effect and appointments be made. The UFBU alleged that the decision of banning compassionate appointments is based on the ‘one-sided decision’ of the Indian Bank Association (IBA).
“It reflects the UPA government’s anti-labour and anti-people policy,” Union leaders alleged. They urged the IBA to continue with the appointments made on compassionate ground.
The Union stated that as there could be no financial alternative to the scheme, appointments on compassionate ground should be continued. UFBU would continue with its protest if their demand were not met.
The Union has also decided to go on an all-India bank strike on March 9 to press for its demand. UFBU comprises AIBEA, AIBOC, NCBE, AIBOA, BEFI, INBOC, NOBW and NOBO.
