I hate it

I hate it. You get up in the morning before the newspaper arrives. Wait for it. The newspaper arrives without making much sound. You pick it up before your roomies can. All this to find that the communists' party is demanding right to go on strike for IT sector employees. This is one sector where people don't have to shout loud to get things working, abusive language is not used, people talk politely about their problems. IT companies have been outperforming the traditional markets. And now comes the strike option. So political parties get a chance to get into these companies. Each company would have number of unions connected to different political parties. And the effect? Employees of a BPO go on strike stopping the critical support work of their global clients. And the whole world knows about it. They know that outsourcing work to India has more side effects than the cost advantages.

Flexible labour policies (read: hire and fire) are one of the reasons why IT, ITES and BPO companies are so successful in India. Add any union-baaji in it and then their fate would be no different than the PSUs. And IMO, this will cause a flight of MNCs from India.
