Agitational programme in Canara Bank
Canara Bank Staff Union (CBSU), one of our affiliates, from its Central Committee meeting held in February, 2020 decided to hold Dharna throughout the country on 17th March 2020 in front of all the Circle Offices of Canara Bank,
Opposing : MERGER OF PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS.
Demanding : 1. Adequate recruitment of Workmen – Clerk & Substaff/Watchmen;
2. Posting of watchmen at all Branches;
3. Payment of Gratuity/Pension for past services;
4. Enumeration of Service Conditions of HKPs;
5. Enhancement of Welfare Measures.
The Canara Bank management used to hold discussions on staff matters at regular intervals with CBSU. But for some time now the bank management has put this practice on hold unilaterally. Our affiliate, quite obviously, decided to organise agitation programme including Dharna.

We call upon our bank level unions and all State Units to be in close contact with CBSU leadership in different States; extend all sorts of cooperation and take necessary initiatives to extend solidarity support for making the All India Dharna programme grand success.
