TO ALL UNITS & MEMBERS
Make 8th January 2016 strike a total success – massively associate yourselves against the naked attacks on bipartism in Associate Banks.
Further to our Circular dated 14-12-2015, we have duly served the notice on IBA and all Bank managements about our call for strike on 8th January, 2016 against the violation of bipartite settlement, negation of collective bargaining and repudiation of our hard-won trade union justifys by the managements of Associate Banks at the behest of SBI. We desired to resolve the issues through bilateral discussions and that is why on two occasions we deferred the strike call. But our hopes have been belied. Associate Banks’ managements and SBI feel that they are masters on their own.
They do not want to respect Bipartite Settlement. They do not care for collective bargaining. They seem to be not subject to any reasoning or rationale except their whims. They seem to be more interested in confrontation than dialogue and resolution. They persist with the violations. They insist on CPS. They are not bothered about existing settlements that subsist. They do want to desist from their wrongful decisions. Hence revival of the agitation has been forced on us. That is why the call for All India Bank Strike on 8th January, 2016.
Instead of utilizing dialogue and discussion to resolve the issues, the managements are in aggravation mode. One by one, the managements have gone ahead with their unilateral actions. Offer letters under CPS have been served on the employees in the Associate Banks. As expected, employees are spontaneously and massively rejecting the offer. But the managements are bent on moving in their own way. IBA’s attitude is also lukewarm and IBA appears to be a spectator instead of interfering in the matter and advising the Associate Banks to adhere to the bipartite settlement. That is why we have to show our strong resentment and observe the strike successfully.
March on comrades, move with your exemplary unity; resolutely manifest your solidarity; Strike with your traditional militancy. Make the strike a total success in all the Banks and in all States

AN UNFAIR DEAL BY SBI MANAGEMENT
AIBOA EXTENDS SOLIDARITY TO THE STRIKING WORKFORCE ON 08.01.2016
State Sector Bank Employees’ Association [SSBEA] had observed a strike call on 04.06.2015 in five associate Banks [ie] State Bank of Hyderabad, State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur, State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of Patiala and State Bank of Travancore against the SBI management’s attitude in handling the IR issues hurting the time tested approach of redressal grievance mechanism.
Having experienced the rigid approach of SBI management, the second strike for 2 days was announced on 1st and 2nd December 2015 and the workmen workforce in Public Sector Banks have decided to extend support through solidarity strike on 02.12.2015. Representatives of Labour Ministry advised both parties in the conciliation meeting held at Delhi to resolve the issues through mutual discussions and resultantly the two days strike was deferred. SSBEA had a round of discussion with SBI management on 03.12.2015. The management maintained their stand in the negotiation.
SBI management disregarded the bipartite negotiation and also the sensitive issues involved. The end result of their action is the announcement of strike action on 08.01.2016 by AIBEA men and women throughout the country.
AIBOA, known for its stand justify from inception, calls upon the officers not to do any clerical work in all the offices and make the solidarity strike on 08.01.2016 a resounding one.
- Altering the working conditions is unjust
- Rights cannot be bartered away
- Bipartite can not be bypassed.
AIBOA extends total solidarity to the entire workforce in Public Sector Banks in realising the demands.
