The Baroda UP Bank Employees Union, which is affiliated with the All India Regional Rural Bank Employees Association (AIRRBEA), has issued an urgent request to the bank management to install air conditioners in branches throughout Uttar Pradesh. This plea comes as the region grapples with a severe heat wave that is significantly impacting the health and productivity of bank employees.

The union’s letter highlights the extreme discomfort and health risks faced by employees due to soaring temperatures. Bankers are experiencing headaches, migraines, vomiting, and other heat-related illnesses, which make it challenging for them to perform their duties effectively. The union argues that air conditioning is not a luxury but a necessity for maintaining a safe and efficient work environment.

The heatwave this summer has become a life-threatening issue for both government officials and the general public. During the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, several polling officials in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh lost their lives due to heat-related conditions. In Uttar Pradesh alone, 33 poll personnel succumbed to the extreme heat during the seventh phase of the Lok Sabha election held in 13 constituencies.

Another issue raised in the letter is the discrimination in the installation of air conditioners. While some branches have had air conditioners installed, they are primarily located in officers’ cabins, neglecting the clerical workforce. A union member expressed concern and stated that this unequal treatment within the same bank is unfair and needs to be rectified immediately. The union insists that the issue should be resolved promptly to ensure fair and equal working conditions for all employees.

In their appeal, the union commended the dedication and resilience demonstrated by bank employees, who have continued to provide exceptional service despite the harsh working conditions. This commitment was evident in the recent FY24 annual results, where the bank achieved impressive financial performance. The union believes that providing a conducive work environment, including the installation of air conditioners, is vital for sustaining this high level of service and employee morale.
