New Delhi: The contractual workers of Air India and its management will meet the chief labour commissioner on Wednesday for another round of talks over the workers’ demand of better pay and other facilities.
“We will be meeting the chief labour commissioner today in support of our demand. We expect the AI management to take a positive decision,” said Jeet Singh, president of Indian Airlines Limited - Airport Services Limited (IAL-ASL) Employees Union.
Singh said that the union would decide its future course of action after the meeting.
The nearly 300 contractual security and commercial staff of Air India at Delhi, Amritsar and other centres went on strike from 1 June demanding better pay package, medical and other benefits.
The strike was withdrawn on 10 June after the chief labour commissioner assured them of positive steps by the airline management.
The Air India management, taking a strong step against the stir, had terminated the contract of 21 workers on the first day of the strike.
