The Bank Employees Union has told that they had demanded this earlier also but it was turned down. Bank employees have to say that they want 2 days off in a week.
New Delhi. In a letter sent by the All India Bank Employees Association to the Indian Bank Association, it has been said to increase the working hours. The employees demand that they get 2 days off in a week, for which they are ready to work 30 minutes extra every day (5 days). He says that for this, the time of starting work in the morning can be done 30 minutes before. Apart from this, it has also been proposed to increase the customer care service or non-cash transactions by 30 minutes every day.
As per the proposed plan, the bank’s proceedings will start at 9.15 am instead of 9.45 am and will continue till 4.45 pm at its scheduled time. The timing of cash transactions will be done at 9.30-1.30 and then till 2-3.30. At the same time, non-cash transactions will happen from 3.30 am to 4.45 pm.
Request has already been rejected
All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) general secretary C.H. Venkatachalam told that he has been demanding for a 5-day work week for a long time but the Indian Banks Association (IBA) did not approve it. He said that when LIC got its approval last year, this demand was raised once again and this time IBA asked how will the less work not done on 2nd Saturday be compensated. Venkatachalam said, “We have agreed to increase the working time by 30 minutes every day. We hope that IBA, Government and RBI will agree on this.”
IBA had proposed to increase the salary
The demand for reduction of working days by the employees union was made during the peak of the Kovid-19 epidemic.
The IBA had rejected this demand and said that the salary of the employees could be increased by 19 percent. Let us tell you that at present, bank employees have a holiday on the second and fourth Saturdays every month. If the demand of the employees is accepted, then they will have to work for 7.30 hours every day in the bank. In this way, customers will also get an extra half hour to complete their work. However, for those who used to complete their work on Saturdays, it may be difficult for them.
