union labor ministry summoned amazon regarding layoffs
Underlining the Industrial Disputes Act, it was argued that without permission from the government, an employer cannot be laid off.
NITES President Harpreet Saluja told the media that the union is expecting justice for the employees.
He also said that the unethical voluntary separation policy proposed by Amazon will be ended by the government and the action taken by the authorities has brought a sigh of relief to the employees.
According to sources, Amazon is set to lay off 10,000 people so far and the eliminations will continue till 2023.
