Regional rural banks' staff to go on strike on June 8

Close to 70,000 officers and employees at 82 regional rural banks (RRBs) across the country will go on strike on June 8.

Some of the key demands of these employees working across 17,000 branches of RRBs include parity of pension, formation of National Rural Bank of India, regularisation and absorption of part-time workers in RRBs.

According to Mr Dilip Kumar Mukherjee, Secretary General, All India Regional Rural Bank Employees' Association (AIRRBEA), the employees have also been demanding for the withdrawal of government order on HR policy and representation of workman and officers in the board of management.

“In spite of the specific direction of the Supreme Court to extend parity of wage structure to the RRB staff, more specifically by the Karnataka High Court and the Rajasthan High Court to extend parity of pension benefits, the Union Government has not yet extended the benefit of pension to the RRB staff,” said a press statement issued by AIRRBEA.
