The United Forum of Bank Unions proposed the strike beginning 6am on May 30, till 6am on June 1, demanding early revision of wages. The wage revision has been due since November 1, 2017.
"The strike notice has been served to Indian Banks Association representing the bank management and the Chief Labour Commissioner (Central), New Delhi," C H Venkatachalam, General Secretary, AIBEA, told IANS.
The UFBU is an umbrella body of nine unions in the banking sector representing staff and officers. Wage revision talks between UFBU and IBA held in Mumbai on May 5 had ended in a failure.
Mr Venkatachalam said the IBA offered an increase of 2 per cent over the total wage bill of the banks as on March 31, 2017.
The unions had rejected the IBA offer, Mr Venkatachalam said.
While the government had asked the IBA to conclude the wage revision settlement before November 1, 2017, the latter has been delaying, he said.
