SA banking strike to cripple ATM and banking services

The South African Society of Bank Officials, SASBO, says it is going ahead with its banking strike this Friday.

The Union, which is the biggest financial union in the country, says it will ensure that ATMs and banking operations are not functional.

SASBO’s General Secretary Joe Kokela says about 40 000 members are expected to take part in the countrywide strike. which is against the retrenchment of workers and digitalisation of banking systems.

“We will continue with the strike on Friday. South Africans need to know what is happening at the banks, how employees are being treated. We will make sure that ATMs don’t operate. We will make sure that internet banking service is not working.”
