The IT & ITES Trade Union in West Bengal has finally taken shape. The formation of this trade union comes at a time when West Bengal is attracting huge investments in the IT and the non-IT sectors. This would probably pave the way for more such trade unions in other states like Kerala. Even though the union has been formed, IT employees might be reluctant to join the trade union as they might not want to be seen attending the meetings and gatherings of such trade unions. Attend union meetings might not go down favourably with bosses and this could be one of the main reasons why employees would think twice before joining a trade union.
As expected, the techies have shown their web savviness from Day 1 and have launched a website and a blog which will help them in reaching out to the public.
