Abstract: This article provides an overview of the consequences of technology change on employment relationship in India . New technologies opened up employment opportunities in new and emerging sectors. Skills needed have undergone a change from that of manual dexterity and physical strength to those of trouble shooting and process handling. Group based incentivization and company specific bargaining are becoming more common . Unions no longer resist technology change but are concerned with the implications on the number of jobs, their content and earnings . It's also argued that subjective norms need to be considered as a variabl e influencing the behavioural intentions of workers with respect to acceptance of technology change. Implications for practice and future research directions are also discussed.
