The all India State Bank Officers’ Federation represents over 75,000 Officers of State Bank of India and its seven Associates namely State Bank of Bikaner, State Bank of Hyderabad, State Bank of Indore, State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of Patiala, State Bank of Saurashtra and State Bank of Travancore. Membership of the Federation extends to Officers belonging to Junior, Middle level as also Senior Grades performing functions such as Assistant Managers, Deputy Managers, Managers, Assistant General Managers and Deputy General Managers of over 13,000 Branches/Offices of the State Bank Group throughout the Country.

The Federation was founded in the year 1965. It has 15 affiliates consisting of 14 Circle Associations and ABOA representing 7 Associate Banks with a total membership of over 75,000. Its Central Office is presently at Bangalore. It has branch offices at Local Head Offices of SBI as well as the Head Quarters of all Associates Banks.

The Federation is an apolitical and independent trade union. It is led by serving bank officers only.It is affiliated to All India Bank Officers’ Confederation, which is also an independent Trade Union.

The Federation is recognised by the Management. The Federation is a partner in bipartite and tripartite forums established in the bank for negotiations, consultations, customer service, community service banking, welfare schemes etc. It firmly believes in finding solutions to all problems through bilateral negotiations with the Management.

The Federation is committed to the objectives for which the banks were nationalised. It actively participates in and supports all schemes and measures initiated by the Government for ameliorating the poorer sections of the society and priority sectors of the economy.

The Central Office of the Federation at Bangalore is provided with all infrastructure which are necessary for maintaining efficient communication systems between the affiliates, membership and the management in a most systematic manner. Apart from sending out circulars and other communications to grass-root level membership providing them with day to day information on the activities of the organisation, the Federation has been publishing a monthly magazine known as “Officers’ Cause” from its Head Quarters. The journal is released on the 15th of every month regularly. The journal has completed 16 years of its  publication and is a source of information to the grass-root level members spread out throughout the country. Copies of the journal reach all the 8900 and odd branches of SBI throughout the country keeping the members informed about the activities of the Federation. Apart from the publication of Officers’ Cause, the Federation has also been instrumental in bringing out “Common Bond” another monthly journal, the ownership of which was later on transferred to AIBOC.

In order to equip our office-bearers and activists with skills in defending their colleagues facing disciplinary proceedings, the Federation has launched a quarterly journal “Domestic Enquiry” during the year 1997. The publication has been well received. Yet another quarterly journal ‘Social Concern’ has been launched in 1999 to cover the Social Welfare Activities of our Affiliates.

With a view to provide further fillip to the movement, the Federation has set up an academy in the name of ‘National Academy of Trade Union Research and Education (N.A.T.U.R.E.). Periodical Training Programmes are conducted by the Academy to groom activists of our affiliates as potential leaders.

The aim of the Federation is to achieve through constructive co-operation with the management and the Government, maximum efficiency in banking operations, balanced spread of banking to different regions, high quality customer service, development of human resources, modernisation of systems and procedures, prevention of wasteful expenditure and frauds and to generate stable and harmonious industrial relations.
