New Delhi (Sputnik) — Seeking better pay, over a million bank employees of around 40 Indian banks are on a two-day nationwide strike starting Wednesday.
Nine bank employee unions across 21 public, 12 private and seven foreign banks are participating in the strike, which was called after unions refused to agree to a 2 percent wage hike for junior level officers.
"From unions, we made it clear that the Indian Banks Association (IBA) offer of 2% was not in good taste," DT Franco, the general secretary of the All India Bank Officers' Confederation, said.
