Ludhiana: 17th October 2017: (Punjab Screen Bureau)::
The employees and officers of Central Bank of India in large number staged a demonstration against the management to press for their long outstanding demands. This was held in front of the Regional Office of the bank situated at Ferozepur road Ludhiana. Their demands include immediate appointment of the wards of the members who died in harness which are about 200 in number and lingering for the last two years. The second major demand is recruitment of all the officers and clerks allocated by IBPS. This demonstration is part of the all india agitation call given by All India Central Bank Employees Federation and All India Central Bank Officers Association. Speakers told that the compassionate appointment scheme has been reintroduced in the banks from 5th August 2014 after a long persuation by our apex body AIBEA. Only 7 or 8 substaff members have been given appointment, whereas around 200 appointments are kept pending for the last more than 2 years. Similarly recently IBPS has allocated around 1860 single window operators, around 500 AFO’s and around 300 PO’s at the request of Central Bank Management. Bank has preferred to appoint very less number of employees and officers contrary to the need of the branches, leaving the majority of the vacancies unfilled. The leaders criticized the unconcerned attitude of the central office management towards the family meembers of the deceased employees. They declared that if the demands are not fulfilled then there will be one day strike on 7th December 2017. The leaders who addressed included Com. Rajesh Verma-- President, Com. M S Bhatia- Regional Secretary of Central Bank Of India Employees Union ( North Zone) and Com. Gurmeet Singh- Deputy General Secretary and Com.
