PSU bank staff on 2-day strike

Last updated on: August 06, 2009 

Employees of public sector banks across the country began a nationwide two-day strike on Thursday for higher wages and pension, affecting cash transaction and foreign exchange trading volumes.

Bank unions representing about 900,000 employees in state-run banks and old generation private sector banks went on strike after talks with Indian Banks' Association, the apex body representing bank management, failed on Tuesday.
