Union labour minister Santosh Gangwar addressing a press conferenceNew Delhi: All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) has urged Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar to take steps to desist industries from terminating staff amid the lockdown, making a particular reference to a global technology firm which has fired 700 employees.

In a letter shot off to Gangwar, AITUC said,”…making a particular reference to Fareportal India Pvt Ltd, calls upon your urgent intervention to send out a stronger directive to the industries and commercial establishments to stop forthwith all the acts of gross illegality of terminating employees and mandate withdrawal of all termination orders.”

This is a travesty of natural justice in the backdrop of the lockdown declared to contain the spread of coronavirus, it said.

All these acts are in absolute transgression of the advisory issued by the Ministry of Labour and Employment at this crucial juncture of national emergency.
