Employees at Tata Consultancy Services' (TCS) centre at Espoo and Salo in Finland walked out of their jobs today, according to international media reports.
About 160 staff were protesting against job cuts, and the protest is expected to last till Friday morning, reports said.
Reports also suggested the company was laying off workers who were part of the Nokia deal it signed early this year.
When contacted, a TCS spokesperson said: "TCS has begun collective consultations in Finland with employee representatives. The consultation process is aimed at streamlining TCS' operations in selected areas and harmonising them with its global operations. The negotiations are expected to be concluded after six weeks. TCS is committed to supporting all potentially impacted employees throughout this process. Until the consultations with employee representatives are complete, TCS will be unable to provide any further details."
