I read an article this morning about a group of workers at a Nokia factory in India threatened to go on strike unless a pay settlement was reached. The workers were part of the Nokia India Employees Progressive Union.
The workers got a pay deal. See the article here.
Could this lead to Indian IT workers demanding more money for their work. There was also a recent bout of strikes in China where unhappy factory workers were in dispute over pay.
The world could change if wage inflation hits the top two offshore IT destinations.
The wage inflation could be a long term challenge for UK companies offshoring to these destinations but the industrial action itself could be disruptive.
