The staff unions in the Associated Banks of SBI has called upon its workers to go on strike on 20th May 2016 against the government proposals to merge these banks with SBI. The move of the government will destabilise these banks and also reduce the number of staff.

The Associated Banks which are proposed to be merged with SBI are: State Bank of Mysore, State bank of Travancore, State bank of Patiala, StateBbank of Bikaner and Jaipur State bank of Hyderabad and Bharatiya Mahila Bank.

The government should retract from this unnecessary move.
