translated from Spanish: Why is Bank Employee Day commemorated on November 6?

Every November 6th, Bank Worker’s Day is celebrated and is by law a non-working day for branch workers. The reason for this ephemeris was born with the formal foundation of the union of the Banking Association in 1924, which called for better wage conditions and a reduction in working hours, which at that time was extended by 12 hours per day. The first bank strike to be remembered occurred in 1919 and starred the employees of banco provincia. The influence of the Great Russian Revolution of 1917 created the labor strikes made up of anarchists and socialists. But also his repression by the government of Hipólito Yrigoyen in the period known as “Patagonia Rebelde” in 1920 – 1921.

“The National Banking Association was founded on November 6, 1924 by a core of employees dominated by socialist militants (…) The word “association” realized that bankers sought to distinguish themselves from other unionized workers. Initially there were 1500 affiliates and their first headquarters remained in Bartolomé Mitre 382 of the city of Buenos Aires”. the historian narrated about the banking guild Omar Acha. That is why today the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic (BCRA) confirmed that there will be no attention to the public, although there will be no activity in ATMs and the web to use the home banking system. In addition, the bank indicated that all banks in the country will remain closed and there will be no official data on the quote of the U.S. currency.
