A rally opposing it was also planned by the Association, Venkatachalam told PTI.
He alleged the merger of public sector banks would mean closure of six banks.
The BJP government at the Centre had on Friday unveiled a mega plan to merge 10 public sector banks into four, to create fewer and stronger global-sized bankers as it looks to revive economic growth.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Friday said 10 public sector banks -- Punjab National Bank, Canara bank, Union Bank of India, Indian Bank, United Bank of India, Allahabad Bank, Syndicate Bank, Corporation Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce and Andhra Bank would be merged.
"Government may call it a merger.. six banks which have been built up over the years will disappear from banking scenario", Venkatachalam said.
He recalled that when the financial recession was experienced world over in 2008, the domestic banking system was safe because of public sector banks.
On further course of action, he said the Union would meet in New Delhi on September 11 to decide on going on strike.
