Mumbai: Mumbai’s regional labour commissioner A.K. Agarwal has called pilots of Jet Airways (India) Ltd and the airline management to his office on 31 August at 4pm for “conciliation proceedings” under Section 12 of Industrial Disputes Act 1947.
A newly-formed pilots’ union at Jet Airways on Monday said that it has served notice to the airline for an indefinite strike starting midnight of 7 September to demand the reinstatement of two pilots, Capt Sam Thomas and Capt Balaraman, who were fired in early August. Meanwhile, the Air India management and its unions on Wednesday failed to reach an agreement on a wage cut as a majority of employees opposed any revision.
