The Conciliation Meeting in response to the strike notice of AIBOC on 21st December, 2018 was held
today at the office of the Additional CLC(C), Shram Shakti Bhawan, Rafi Marg, New Delhi at 11.00 A.M.
AIBOC was represented by Com Sunil Kumar, Chairman, Com Debasis Ghosh, President, Com Soumya
Datta, General Secretary and Com Ravinder Gupta, Sr. Vice President. After brief introduction, CLC
asked us to present our case. All issues as per the strike notice served were represented by the
representatives threadbare, which was appreciated by representatives of CLC, IBA and DFS. The copy
of the minutes of the Reconciliatory proceedings is appended.
IBA and DFS representatives submitted their views and requested us through the CLC to withdraw the
strike with a verbal note that, they will address the issues in the right perspective. After listening both the
parties, CLC requested us to withdraw the strike. CLC also advised IBA to initiate a bilateral meeting
forthwith in respect of the issue of fractured mandate and other related issues effectively for early
resolution so that strike can be averted. The CLC opined that a perceptible, concrete and positive step
should be initiated by IBA and DFS for addressing all the issues. The HR issues related to Catholic Syrian
Bank and IDBI Bank was also discussed and the AIBOC representatives subsequently visited the office
of DFS and handed over a communique addressed to the Secretary, DFS.
We further conveyed that unless we receive any positive step towards resolution of our issues and
witness any perceptible forward movement, AIBOC is forced to stand firm and resolute on its decision of
24 hour Nationwide Strike call on 21st December, 2018. We also announced that all our major
stakeholders have extended support to us including many of our fraternal organisations, other
Associations including Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers’ Organisations, National
Confederation of Officers’ Association (NCOA) and expressed solidarity for making the strike on 21st
December, 2018 a grand success. In fact, support is pouring in from all sections of the society and 21st
December, 2018 will be a red-letter day in the glorious history of our mighty Confederation.
We, therefore call upon all our affiliates and our rank and file to make the strike total thereby sending a
strong message to IBA, the Government and the powers that be that AIBOC, the apex organisation of
bank officers, who run the Banking Industry are capable of stalling it as well if their genuine demands are not met and their sentiments are not given due cognizance.
Let us all work in unison and mobilize officers irrespective of grades and scales and ensure total success
of the strike.
LONG LIVE OUR UNITY……………….AIBOC MARCH ON………………………
With revolutionary greetings,
