We're deeply concerned about the unethical transfer practices of Tata Consultancy Services. TCS is putting its workers through gratuitous difficulty and is violating their rights. We've prompted the Ministry of Labour and Employment to probe TCS’s conduct and take applicable measures to cover IT workers from similar unethical practices.
NITES has requested the Ministry of Labour and Employment to
Investigate TCS’s transfer practices to determine if they're in violation of labor laws.
- Take applicable action against TCS if it's set up to be violating labor laws.
- Formulate new programs and regulations to cover IT workers from unethical transfer practices.
We believe that all IT workers earn to be treated with respect and quality. We'll continue to fight for the rights of IT workers and insure that they aren't subordinated to unethical practices similar as forced transfers.
We'll keep you streamlined, as further details come by.
