Bengaluru: Members of the All-India IT Employees Association are planning to organise a united front of IT employees associations to hold talks with Karnataka government to resolve various problems, including layoffs, soon.

The decision to bring all associations under one roof was taken by AIITEA in a meeting, said AIITEA president Syed Muqueemuddin. “I have started contacting members of other associations like FITE (Forum For IT Employees),” he said.

FITE is in the process of approaching the labour commission in Bengaluru to submit a petition to stop the alleged "illegal terminations" happening at Cognizant.

After bringing all the forums under one roof, the chiefs of several associations will decide on holding deliberations with Karnataka IT Minister Priyank Kharge and Labour Minister Santosh Lad, on problems faced by the IT industry and its employees, Mr Muqueemuddin said.

 

During the talks with IT and Labour Ministers, the united front will urge the government to hold an open house discussion by inviting all the stakeholders, including IT captains and
employees.

“The open house meeting with all the stakeholders will give opportunities to air their grievances, which will give the government a sense about the problems faced by IT companies and employees. We would like the meetings to begin by next week,” he said.
