One final meeting will be held between the IBA and the bank unions where the two parties will sign a MoU, which will then be handed to the finance ministry for final approval.

In 2020, the IBA and the United Forum of Bank Unions signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) by which around 85,000 bank employees got a 15% increase in their salary packages.
