Egypt's central bank urged all banking sector employees to end their protests and resume work "to ensure the stability of the national economy", dpa reported.
Banks nationwide have been closed since Monday, due to protests and strikes by workers alleging that corruption and rampant abuse was still taking place.
In a statement published in state-run newspapers on Wednesday, the central bank also called on employees to select a group of 20 representatives from each bank to discuss their demands with senior management in the presence of the governor of the central bank.
Meetings are scheduled to begin on Sunday, February 20, and continue for four weeks.
Banks are scheduled to re-open on Sunday.
Egyptian workers in the different sectors began strikes against corruption in their respective companies after the 18 days of protest that forced president Hosny Mubarak from office.
