AI pilots threaten to strike work

“The executive pilots have taken a decision to go on strike because nobody is in the state of mind to work due to the salary cuts. Starting now, we will not work,” representative of executive pilots, Captain Bhalla said here amid reports that an unspecified number of executive pilots may take mass leave. But Air India spokesperson Jitendra Bhargava said, “We have no intimation of any strike by the pilots.”

There are around 300 executive pilots in the national carrier and since they are part of the airlines management, they cannot form a union or go on a strike, official sources said.
Citing the massive cut in their PLI as the reason for the strike, Bhalla said, “With a stroke of a pen, the CMD Arvind Jadhav has cut 70 per cent salary of all the executive pilots with 50 per cent being evident and 20 per cent hidden.”
