SBI says may service disruption on staff strike next week

Mumbai: A bank officers’ body has served a notice to State Bank of India for a two-day nationwide strike, which could hit customer service at its branches on Tuesday and Wednesday, the bank said in a notice in the Economic Times newspaper.

“Although the management of the bank is making efforts to extend skeleton services at the branches/offices, in the event it is not possible to do so, our valuable customers may face inconvenience," it added.

A nationwide bank strike had hit India in August as unions rebelled against proposals to allow more private ownership of state banking behemoths that could threaten jobs and benefits.
