All India Banks Strike on 20.12.2012

Circular No. 79 Date:- 17.12.2012


The General Secretary

All Units/State Federations & C.C. Members,


Dear Comrades,

Sub:- All India Banks Strike on 20.12.2012
As you are aware, three major organizations, viz., AIBEA, AIBOA and BEFI, have given a strike call on 20.12.2012 in the Banking Industry to oppose and ventilate strong grievances against the so-called Banking Sector Reforms Bills which are totally designed to dismantle public sector banking to the detriment of the interest of the people at large and particularly those in the villages. It is needless to impress upon that the Amendment Bills sought to hand over these Banks in a platter to the private and corporate houses who will be free even to open their own Banks for mobilization of cheaper funds for their own industrial activities and speculative purposes.

The agricultural sector with its vast farming community including agricultural workers is already bleeding under the Government’s neo-liberal policies and the Banking Bills, if passed, will simply do havoc on the current food scarcity in our country.

It is therefore natural that the AIRRBEA has already extended wholehearted support to the strike which has assumed unfathomable proportions in the current scenario.

It may, however, be noted that the organizations have already exempted the Co-operative and RRB sectors from the purview of the strike.

In this context, we have to advise that we fully support the issues and the call of strike and extend our moral support to the organizations giving the strike call.

We call upon our units/State Federations to express our solidarity by –

· Holding Tiffin time gate demonstration on the date of strike, and

· Taking part in rallies with the striking employees wherever possible on the date of strike or beforehand in co-ordination with leaders of BEFI and the above other organizations.

We shall appreciate if any of our State Federations may take part in the Strike considering their organizational position at their level.

With greetings

Yours comradely

Dilip Kumar Mukherjee

Secretary General, AIRRBEA
