(Mumbai)Air India Unions Challenge in HC: Pay Cut due to Pandemic
Air India employee unions have moved the Bombay High Court against the airline’s decision to slash allowances, which form a major part of salary, by ten per cent because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Air India Aircraft Engineers Association, All India Service Engineers Association and Indian Pilots Guild filed a writ petition in the high court earlier this week against the national carrier and its subsidiary Air India Engineering Services Ltd.
The petition, filed through advocates Jane Cox and Karishma Rao, said that on March 20, Air India announced 10 per cent deduction for three months from the allowance package of all employees except the cabin crew on account of the impact of coronavirus outbreak.
The plea pointed out that on the same day the Union government issued an advisory asking all private and public firms not to reduce salaries or sack employees due to the pandemic.
The petitioners had also written to the Ministry of Civil Aviation protesting against the deduction but they were to receive any response, the plea said.
The court is likely to hear the matter next week.
