The Rajya Sabha MP and CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury has said that he will raise the issue of wage settlement of bank employees in the winter session of Parliament.
Inaugurating the fourth conference of the Karnataka chapter of Bank Employees Federation of India (BEFI) in Mangalore at the weekend, he said the issue of wage settlement has been dragging on for almost two years. (The last settlement between Indian Banks Association and bank unions expired in 2012)
Stating that the NDA Government at the Centre is no different from the previous UPA Government, he said the present government would find ways to delay the settlement. He congratulated the workforce in banks for maintaining unity.
