IT layoffs in India: Amid fears of job losses, FITE takes up the fight

Amid fears of massive job cuts in the IT sector, the Forum for IT Employees (FITE) is trying to mount a battle against companies that are laying off employees. But in its three years of existence, FITE has already realized that unionization in the IT sector is not easy.

Forum for IT Employees (FITE), a trade union representing IT sector employees, is slowly taking steps to fight on behalf of individuals who have been laid off by companies. While the union's members run into a few hundreds only, it is still early days for mass movement, according to human resource officials.


FITE, which as per its website, has representation from employees in 50 companies in the IT/ITeS sectors, is looking to build its member base. FITE’s Vice President Vasumathi told Moneycontrol that once they have sufficient members, they will look at regular interactions with employers to have an employee-friendly workplace.
