Mumbai: The Indian Pilots’ Guild, or IPG, representing a section of Air India Ltd pilots who have been on strike for more than 50 days, is willing to meet the management and civil aviation minister Ajit Singh at any place and time to discuss an end to the dispute.
“For the sake of the passengers, we are willing to walk the extra mile to find a resolution to this dispute,” IPG said in a release. “We hope that the ministry and the Air India management feels the same way.”
On Wednesday, the Air India pilots’ agitation entered its 52nd day. The more recently launched hunger strike reached its fourth day. The management and the ministry maintained their stance of not talking to the pilots until the strike was withdrawn. IPG called it the longest pilots’ agitation in 40 years.
