More trouble at Nokia as Indian workers plan hunger strike and demonstration
Nokia’s acquisition by tech giants, Microsoft, has sparked quite a lot of controversy here and there.
Employees at Nokia’s plant at Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, have agreed to stage a hunger strike and demonstration in Chennai on March 31. This is to see that their jobs are guaranteed after Microsoft completes the buying of their current employer.
“The Central and the State Governments should come forward and ensure that the due to the transfer of assets of Nokia to Microsoft , there should not be any job losses. We have decided to stage a one-day hunger fast on March 31 in this regard,” said Nokia India Employees Union leader, A Soundararajan.
Last year, shareholders agreed to sell off the Finnish company to Microsoft for $7.2 billion, pending clearings and approvals from regulatory bodies but this is not the first time workers are showing their dissatisfaction over the deal.
