NUBE general secretary Joseph Solomon refered to the government's recognition of its frontliners in healthcare and the civil service, where one-off payments were given to show gratefulness for their ongoing endeavors. According to Solomon, the banks should imitate this initiative and offer a comparable one-off installment to its staff, huge numbers of whom were in the B40 and M40 gatherings. 

"At the stature of the cross country MCO, scores of bank laborers went up to keep banks open as they were viewed as basic services," said Solomon. "NUBE feels emphatically that banks should not excuse or minimize the function of their representatives in keeping branches open while a significant part of the nation was in one type of lockdown or another." 

Solomon opined that the banks could undoubtedly bear to make the one-off installment to their staff as they recorded more than solid profits so far this year, even while the ban on credit repayments was in power. "Maybank made RM942 million in profit for the second quarter of 2020 (April-June), CIMB's profit was RM277 million in a similar period, RHB made RM400 million and Public Bank's profit was RM1 billion," he said. 

In the most recent round of government payments for frontliners, Ministry of Health laborers were guaranteed RM500 while other frontliners, for example, the police, armed force, and RELA were expanded RM300. "This is the correct thing to do, however what isn't right is for the government and the private area, particularly banks, not to show any feeling of gratefulness to other frontliners, for example, bank laborers, conveyance individuals, and numerous uncelebrated yet truly great individuals from other areas of the economy which kept the nation ticking," he continued. 

Solomon pointed out that it was the government who requested banks to remain open regardless of whether the move took a chance with the soundness of bank representatives. "These representatives did their work persistently in helping to offer a basic support to the rakyat. They went through thorough standard operating systems previously, during, and after work to guarantee the wellbeing of the clients and themselves," he said. 

This came to the detriment of a few bank representatives becoming infected with Covid-19 during the course of their obligations, while numerous others were exposed to clean tests and needed to bear the nervousness of waiting for the outcomes. Up to this point, the danger of infections from stroll in clients remain a danger to the frontliners in banking areas. 

"NUBE inclinations the government and banks to show some appreciation for bank workers who have done their fair share without inquiries in playing their function during the pandemic," closed Solomon. "Some type of monetary recognition will go far to show they are thought about by both their bosses and the government." --Ringgitplus
