Cognizant Employees & F.I.T.E files petition to Pune Labour Commissioner Today!
Layoffs has now become a common term among anyone working in Information Technology sectors. IT is viewed as one of the prestigious industries that helps anyone earn enough money to lead a decent life in cities. With that in mind, many people from various cities and rural areas studied hard and got a place in one or the other IT Company. Monthly salary has become livelihood for most of these people.
The profit motive of the I.T companies to replace the highly paid experienced Employees with lesser experience/ low paid new recruits is leading to illegal terminations. Each company carries it out differently quoting various reasons including employee’s performance, or streamlining to meet customer demands.
As you all aware that one of the IT giants, Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) is illegally terminating thousands of employees by forcing them to submit resignation. It is not few thousands of employees who are affected, but thousands of families. These affected employees, from CTS, are meeting the Labour Commissioner today to hand-over a petition demanding the Maharashtra State Government to intervene in the issue to safeguard the Employees’ rights.
We, F.I.T.E – Forum for I.T. Employees requesting you to send your news reporter to the location and cover the issue in your reputed media.
