Mangaluru: Banking services in the city got affected on Monday as around 2,000 bank employees and officers from the district participated in the two-day strike to protest against the government’s decision to privatise two more state-run banks and one insurance company.

State-run lenders, including Central Bank of India among others have informed their customers to use their digital channels like internet or mobile banking, ATMS services for making transactions during the two-day strike.

Members of UFBU include All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA), All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC), National Confederation of Bank Employees (NCBE), All India Bank Officers’ Association (AIBOA) and Bank Employees Confederation of India (BEFI).
