Indian Banks' Association has received a notice from the general secretaries of associations comprising AIBEA, BEFI, NOBW, INBEF, AIBOA, INBOC and NOBO and informed about their decision to go on a day's nationwide strike on September 2, in support of their demands, Corporation Bank said in a BSE filing.
"A major section of the bank's employees belonging to the workmen unions/Officer's Associations, having allegiance to the above national level unions, may take part in the proposed one day strike on September 2, 2015, if it materialises," it added.
"In view of the above, it is likely that normal functioning of our branches and offices may get affected during the day," Corporation Bank said.
Meanwhile, an inter-ministerial panel headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today met with representatives of trade unions to discuss their 12-point charter of demands on labour issues ahead of the strike call given by unions.
However, the meeting remained inconclusive and it will take place again tomorrow.
About a dozen central trade unions, including BJP-backed Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), have given a call for one-day strike on September 2 to press for their demands.
Today's was the second meeting of the inter-ministerial committee on labour issues.
