From November 8, 2016, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed a note ban upon Indian citizen Bank staff did a hard work. Bank staff did overtime and worked even in holidays. They did such a hard work to manage the currency system for us during Demonetisation.
Now they are saying that they did not get any payment for their overtime and extra work during demonetization. And Bank neglecting their demands. Now the staff ready to strike for not paid during Demonetisation. Their Union has threatened to sue the bank and go on strike if they don’t get any payment for their extra works.
Inside the bank officials and staff had worked hard to ensure the flow of currency. “But later, they were treated very shabbily… exploited though Prime Minister Modi had gone on record to appreciate the good work put in by bank staff,” said CH Venkatachalam, general secretary, All India Banks’ Employees Association (AIBEA).
“We are exploring our legal options,” Mr. Venkatachalam – who had been a sharp critic of demonetisation that he had previously described as a poorly-implemented decision – added. Unions of bank employees say they had taken up the delay in full payment of the overtime dues with the centre’s chief labour commissioner and the Indian Banks Association too.
