Members of the Forum for Information Technology Employees (FITE), Maharashtra's first registered IT union, are scheduled to meet chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday to discuss the formation of the IT committee.
Pavanjeet Mane, president of FITE and member Prashant Panditalso met with Shrikant Bharatiya, officer on special duty (OSD) to chief minister of Maharashtra, on Wednesday.
"We had a great meeting with OSD of the chief minister, Shrikant Bharatiya on Wednesday and he has assured us to form a state-level IT committee. FITE members have been called to meet the chief minister on February 3 to take these things forward," said Mane.
"As of today 72 cases have been filed at the Pune and Mumbai labour commissioner office and around 20 cases have moved to the labour court of Pune," a statement from FITE reads.
The process of registering an issue in the labour court and the subsequent procedure is a lengthy one, according to the members of FITE.
The members of FITE had last met chief minister Devendra Fadnavis along with Bharatiya and state labour minister Sambhaji Patil on July 27, 2017. According to a statement released by FITE in July, when it was not a registered union, “The ministers were shocked to hear the modus operandi of the IT companies where they flouted protocols and laws. Further, the chief minister assured to investigate the matter and our request to set up a committee has been taken into account. Labour minister Sambhaji Patil will be helping with the setting up of the committee under the guidance of chief minister and Shrikanth Bharatiya.”
