As per a press release, the Union said: "On the backdrop of ongoing dual-attack, the deepening global economic situation and the catastrophicPandemic situation prevailing across the globe, the suspension of H-1B, H-4, L-1 and other temporary workpermits by the US government till this year end is a shocking news.With all the industries intertwined with the global finance capital, US government restoring to protectionistreforms would not solve the prevailing economic issue of US or boost the global "synchronized slow down" astermed by IMF."

The Union has also demanded the Ministry of Labour and Employment to intervene and ensure no illegal retrenchments andjob loss are triggered by the action of US.

"Without addressing the root cause of the increasing economic inequality, and blaming immigrants as the causeof it is a mere attempt to mislead the people and working class of US away from the actual issue of the 1%appropriating maximum portion of the wealth generated by the people of US. Misleading and protectionistactions will aggravate the issues in the US and affect the Global value chain.We demand the Indian government and the foreign ministry to immediately intervene and pressurize Trumpgovernment to revoke this suspension, as the Indian IT & ITES sector is the major beneficiary of the H-1B visa.Indian IT & ITES sector is a backbone to the global value chain, any protectionist actions would have directimpact on the lives of Indian IT & ITES employees," the release added. 

Meanwhile, UNITE extends its support to the global IT & ITES employees across the globe. They also call for unionizing of the IT and ITES employees across the world to safeguard from the effects ofprotectionism and prevailing dual-attack.   

This major concern has become the talk of the town in other parts of the country, especially in cities like Chennai and Bangalore.
