Strike or a holiday?


Employees in banking industry including State Bank observed strike yesterday and this continues today also as per schedule. Most of the employees, say more or less majority of them, take it as a holiday for themselves. Thanks to the erosion in money value, as they hardly feel any pinch for the wage cut. Persons belonging to the management too had a good respite whiling away their time more leisurely. They had their customary announcement through the media that the inconvenience caused to the customers is regretted. Beyond that they had nothing to do, they rather had a good sleep last night. Every thing was taken as a ritual and all went on smoothly excepting some news here and there that banking industry suffered a big loss (of course with usual jugglery in numericals) due to this strike. Customers too had a good day meeting their urgencies withdrawing necessary amount of cash through the local ATMs, which have mushroomed in every galee (street) throughout the city and even in rural areas.

Strikes in earlier days took place as a last resort for redressal of the grievances against the concerned management, and they were certainly a powerful means to cause necessary jolt to the employers to the extent that they had ultimately to bow down before the respective unions in an affirmative measure demands wise. Nothing of this sort appears to be the possibility after this strike, as there are no such indications at least till now. If something tangible occurs, well and good with thanks to the present leadership; if not, obviously a cycle of call for strike followed by a call off continues in a ritualistic order in days to come.

  1. Especially Banks ,being the largest public dealing sector the Strike should be rarely used as last tool , when there is no other option. Due care should also be taken about the difficulties faced by the common man and national loss.

  3. Whole network of the country under rules of Government of India is framed for the interest of Public,then why onlyBank Employees are uncared? Only presumption that BankEmployees have no any problem,is not a genuin thought. Who cares for wages – court staff,R.T.O. Nagar Nigams,Sales Taxand many others.I know that at present none is paid less than Bank Staff.

  4. VERY TRUE, SIR. NOW A DAYS NEITHER THE MANAGEMENT NOR THE UNIONS TAKE THE STRIKE SERIOUSLY. AS YOU HAVE VERY RIGHTLY SAID ,THEY TAKE IT AS RITUAL. THIS IS VERY ALARMING AND NOT GOOD FOR THE UNIONS ATLEAST. THE LEADERS SHOULD GIVE A SERIOUS THOUGHT TO IT OTHERWISE THE TIME IS NOT FAR OFF WHEN THE UNIONS WILL CEASE TO EXIST.
