We are jolted, but united: IDBI Bank union

We are jolted, but united: IDBI Bank union

December 13, 2015, Bengaluru, DHNS

 IDBI Bank employees, who recently staged a one-day strike to protest the government’s moves to privatise the bank, have been jolted, but are united, a top union leader said. In September, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had hinted at transforming IDBI Bank along the lines of Axis Bank.

Talking to Deccan Herald, All India IDBI Officers’ Association President (Karnataka Unit) Purushotham A P said, “Earlier, we (IDBI Officers) were not much active in trade unions. There was no union affiliated to All India IDBI Bank Officers Association. Only 2,700 members were affiliated. But, when this privatisation talks began from the FM, everyone started coming together. We thought only trade unions can rescue us from privatisation.” He added in a lighter vein, “One way I should thank the Finance Minister for uniting us.” IDBI Bank has around 30,000 employees.
