ISLAMABAD:


The Pakistan Banking Employees Federation (PBEF) has demanded the representation of labour organisations and trade unions in the parliament.


In a press release, the federation’s charter of demand asked the government to reserve 10 per cent seats for workers in the national and provincial assemblies to safeguard their rights.

PBEF has also demanded the reinstatement of hundreds of employees who were sacked from the banking sector and asked both private and public banks to clear arrears of former employees.

The trade union said that pensioners of some private banks were getting as low an amount as Rs2,000 to Rs4,000, while the low-cadre employees have not received a salary raise for years.

The federation demanded that banking employees be given annuity as per the pension rules for government employees.
