Air India pilot unions reject revised salary system; vows action against management if members fired

Air India pilot unions reject revised salary system; vows action against management if members fired

Mumbai: The two pilot unions of Air India told the management that they would go to "any extent" to defend their members. They made it clear that they were prepared to hold up against the Tata Group-owned airline's management over its "unilateral" decision to change the salary structure and service conditions.

The two unions, Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA) and Indian Pilots Guild (IPG) have now rejected the updated salary system that Air India introduced on April 17 for its pilots and cabin personnel.

"It has been resolved by the IPG and ICPA that if any member/s of our union/s is/are terminated by the management for not signing the revised terms and conditions, the ICPA and IPG have pledged in unison to go to any extent to protect member/s till they are reinstated," a joint ICPA-IPG resolution stated.

A query sent to Air India did not elicit a response.

Immediately after Air India circulated the revamped salary structure and service conditions, the two unions urged their members not to sign the document, saying that the terms and conditions were being imposed on them.

Besides, the two unions also termed the airline management's move to promote senior pilots with over 4 years of experience to the management cadre as the one aimed at killing the unions at the airline.
