The All India Bank Officers’ Confederation – AIBOC is a Symbol of hope and aspiration to Managerial Class all over the world. When the supervisory workers were exploited on the plea that they are part of the Management and cannot form Unions, AIBOC came into existence.
All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC) is an apex trade union of supervisory cadre employees. As an apex body, AIBOC is the torch-bearer in the trade union movement not only of the Bank Officers but also of the Supervisory cadre of employees in the financial sector as a whole. AIBOC has been a forerunner in championing the cause of the working class amongst supervisory cadre employees. AIBOC has acted as a catalyst in forging unity of bank employees and in forming United Forum of Bank Unions in 1997, comprising of all Bank Employees’ Unions and Officers’ Organisations.
In Banking industry, it encompasses Public Sector, Private Sector, Regional Rural Banks and Co-operative Banks. AIBOC commands membership of over 2 lacs, with an overwhelming majority in banking industry. It has affiliates in all Banks in Public Sector and 10 banks in Private Sector. Officers’ Organisations in 2 State-level Co-operative Banks, Regional Rural Banks and 4 other Financial Institutions are also affiliated to AIBOC. In order to accelerate the pace of consolidation, separate Federations have been set up for Officers of Private Sector, Co-operative Sector and Regional Rural Banks under the banner of AIBOC. Likewise, AIBOC has set up State Units in all States and Union Territories. These Units have, in turn, set up District Units all over the country.
