AIUCBEF played a Leading and Significant role taking along with it all the other unions representing both Officers and Workmen staff, when the Bank suffered a serious setback and was engulfed by an atmosphere of uncertainty about the future in late 90s. This, coupled with consistent and constant positive role and contributions of AIUCBEF, UCO BANK has regained its prime place in the Banking Industry.AIUCBEF‘s nominees have been representing the workmen staff on the Top Policy Making body-Board of the Bank.Ever since the office of the Workman Director came into being in 1971, leaders of AIUCBEF have been on the Board of the Bank continuously.

He was the first workman director on the Board of the Bank and occupied the office for a record period of 13 years.
