Where does company loyalty end/begin?

According to an article on the BBC News (Business) Website, staff who work for The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) have been told that they must have their primary bank account with the firm or face disciplinary action.

Although the policy is believed to be in line with industry norms, AMICUS union points out that as many as 14,000 current staff may currently fall short of this standard.

AMICUS are clearly quite unhappy how RBS have dealt with the matter, as one official remarked:

"If you work for Tesco you won't be disciplined for buying your groceries from Sainsbury's."

It's hard to say if this is a petty request or a fundamental breach of what should be reasonably expected of an employee.
