The amalgamation of ENBI with PNB on 4th September 1993 was an historic event in the sense that for the first
time a Nationalised bank was merged with another nationalised bank under the Govt. Policy of restructuring the Banking Sector.
Had there been honest intentions the process of amalgamation would have been a smooth and trouble free one. But a handful
of selfish and coward agents parading themselves as trade union leaders conspired with the Management. According to the conspiracy,
thousands of ENBI Employees were transferred from their permanent posting to far flanged areas without and good and cogent
reasons. This created resentment amongst the employees and they looked for support from their fellow trade union leaders.
These leaders who chant 'duniya ke mazdoron ek ho' 'jeena hai to marna seekho kadam mila ke chalna seekho' back stabbed these
ill fated employees and conspired with the management. These leaders for whom trade unionism is a profession and not a medium
for service to the working class saw an excellent market to get transferred favoured employees to their choice stations.
Under the inspired leadership of Shri J.K. Sawhney a sustained struggle was launched against the management. The true
trade union workers accepted the challenge and did fight tooth and nail these attempts being let loose on them. They agitated
at all India level holding demonstrations, dharnas, rallies etc. Writs were filed in various
Hon'ble High Courts of the country. Shame on these self styled retired and tired leaders who gone to the extent of filing
affidavits in support of the management. This way they got exposed. Not only had this they conspired with the management in
getting Shri J.K. Sawhney removed from the services of the bank.
Quantity Never Wins Quality Ever Wins:
But then history proves that such conspirators have never achieved success. Such attacks could not demoralise
the courageous true trade union workers and in the process they got enormous support from PNB employees and thus a foundation
of self-less militant trade union movement was laid and ALL INDIA PNB WORKERS FEDERATION came into existence under the
able leadership of Shri D.P. Tank and Shri J.K. Sawhney President and General Secretary respectively.
With in a short span, the Federation has succeeded in creating new rights for PNB Employees such as creation of
post of Head Cahier Category 'E', reduction in unit of clerks for promotion as special assistant.
