IT employees constantly live in fear of blacklisting

Information communication and telecommunication (ICT) tools like Internet not only gives information but also it is considered a threat by the IT/ITeS employees. It is like ‘surgical knife which can also be used otherwise’, said Mr A.K. Padmanabhan, President, Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU). Speaking on the sidelines of CII Institute of Quality summit, Mr. Padmanabhan said “Work conditions in IT/ITeS may be bad but employees are unable to express it, they fear blacklisting or thrown out of the company.” Technology should not be looked at as means of cutting jobs. Adoption of technologies should suit the country. “Take requirement of the country or it would be disastrous when adopted recklessly”, he explained. Earlier, speaking on labour and employment issues in India, Mr Padmanabhan said labour issues were yet to become key issues in any managements or government decisions. It is not discussed seriously either. Efforts should be made that the country’s youth power be harnessed to achieve employability and growth. The Hindu Business Line
