London, Sep 2: British Telecom's (BT) plan to take over 2,000 Indian call center jobs to UK has hit a roadblock.
According to a report published in The Telegraph, the telecom giant may not get the cooperation of the workers when it comes to weekend and late night shifts.
Following reports that these jobs require employees to to work weekend shifts and up until 11pm at night, Communications Workers Union (CWU) has said that it will be unfair for the workers.
BT which moved about 5,500 call centre jobs to India in 2003 in a bid to cut costs, decided to take jobs home to provide permanent positions for UK staff.
When it came to shifts, BT faced no trouble with the Indian employees who were willing to work till 3.30am local time as the country was 4.5 hours ahead of UK.
