However, the State Bank of India has maintained that the impact of the proposed strike would be minimum as most of its employees are not members of the participating unions.
"AIBEA and BEFI have called for an all India strike of its members on October 22, in support of their demands. In the event the strike materializes, the normal functioning of the Bank may get affected," the Oriental Bank of Commerce said in a regulatory filing.
AIBEA and BEFI said they are opposing outsourcing of regular and perennial nature of banking jobs, and privatisation of banking industry while demanding adequate recruitment of clerical and sub-staff and stringent steps for recovery of mounting bad loans.
Last month, the officers' unions had called a two-day all India bank strike on September 26 and 27 that was later withdrawn after the government's intervention.
