Employees of these Banks may not get any salary hike after 11th Bipartite ?

11th Bipartite Wage Revision Current Status – Meeting of Banks’ Union (UFBU) with negotiation committee of Indian Bankers’ Association (IBA) held on 29th September 2018 was concluded without any outcome. IBA was not agreed on any further hike on their earlier offer of 6%. Banks’ Union are insisting on salary hike of minimum 15% on payslip.

The major highlights of the meeting was representing the “Performance Linked Annual Increment” for bank employees by one of the member from IBA negotiation committee. The rough sketch which was presented by IBA to Banks’ Union for discussion was purely based on Fixed plus variable pay hike linked to individual Bank’s Performance.

IBA has offered to categorize the bank in three broad category on their performance metrics i.e. Net Profit on YoY basis and Return on Assets (RoA),

As per offer given by IBA :
Category ‘A’ Bank : All such banks which are having Return on Assets (ROA) greater than Zero and Percentage increase in YoY Operating Profit higher than 15%. The base year considered for the calculation is 31st March 2018.
Mandatory Criteria : Operating Profit : > 15%      |  ROA – >=0
Category ‘B’ Bank : Similarly, for category B banks the criteria are :
Mandatory Criteria : Operating Profit : 7.1 – 15%  |  ROA – (-)0.24 – 0
Category ‘C’ Bank : Similarly, for category C banks the criteria are :
Mandatory Criteria : Operating Profit : 0.01% – 7%  |  ROA – (-)0.75 – 0.25

Banks will be considered for granting salary hike on the basis of above mentioned criteria. Corresponding annual hike will also be given based on the structure mentioned above.

If Bank’s Union accepts the demand of IBA for performance linked annual hike, all such banks which don’t achieve the target as per the defined criteria as mentioned above for any salary hike.

It means smaller banks’ employees will get the smarter package than bigger bank. As like in this case Vijaya Bank employees will get the higher annual increment than State Bank employees. I don’t understand any logic behind it.
