Chennai, Feb 22 (IANS) The All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC) on Monday said it would go on nation-wide strike on February 29 to demand the reinstatement of an official in the Kerala-based Dhanalaxmi Bank.
The bank had terminated the services of P.V.Mohanan, general secretary, Dhanlaxmi Bank Officers Organisation without given any reason, AIBOC said on Monday.
In a statement issued here, the AIBOC said Mohanan was terminated without any enquiry and alleged this was because he had brought out publicly certain irregularities by a bank board member.
After a series of agitation by the employees, an agreement was arrived to maintain the status quo as prevailed before the termination of Mohanan, AIBOC said.
“But reinstatement was not ensured by the management. Hence All India Bank Officers’ Confederation decided to go on all India strike covering all the banks in the country on February 29,” the statement said.
