Hyderabad, Feb 4 : About one million employees and officers working in all public sector and private banks, foreign banks, co-operative banks and regional rural banks will participate in a two-day nationwide strike, called by the Central Trade Unions from February 20.

Talking to UNI today, All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) General Secretary Ch Venkatachalam said the Workers' Parliament and Convention was held at New Delhi on September 4, 2012 and had given the call for this first ever two days general strike jointly by all the central trade unions in the country in protest against the Central Government's anti-people, anti-labour and the pro-corporate neo-liberal economic policies.

He said the Government has been increasingly succumbing to the pressures of the profit greedy corporate and business houses and consequently, the workers are facing problems for their jobs, job security, legitimate wage payments, and genuine trade union rights.
