KAKKANAD: After a brief lull, the sacked employees of TCS associated with the Association of IT Employees (CITU) are all set to stage a protest by covering their faces in front of the TCS. The protest will be held at 5 pm on Friday.

 “The protest is just a beginning of the mass protest which is to be staged against the TCS in the coming days. Employees sacked from the TCS and other working professionals will take part in the protest. As many as 200 employees will take part in the protest,” said A D Jayan, general secretary of AITUC, in a press conference.

The AITUC planned the protest after the TCS authorities at Info park kept away from the meeting called for settling the issues amicably. “So far they have sacked only best performers in the company who have more than ten years of experience. The sacking has been done as a part of their profit generating mantra,” he alleged.

He also said that the sacked employees are on the verge of committing suicide as they have taken several loans from banking institutions.

“At present the TCS is offering two months salary for the sacked employees. How can they live with that meagre amount? Most of them are living here with their family and they can’t meet their expense with the meagre amount,” he added.

AITUC district secretary R Ratheesh and the sacked employees of the TCS attended the press conference.

Meanwhile, the Ernakulam Labour Commissioner will hold a meeting with the TCS authorities at the collectorate on Thursday to discuss the issue.
