Mumbai: Air India on Friday said it has taken adequate steps to ensure smooth operations across airports in view of the proposed two-hour agitation by a section of its employees to protest delay in payment of salaries.
“Air India is taking requisite steps at airports to ensure that passengers do not face any inconvenience if and when the section of employees walk out between 1300 hours and 1500 hours today,” Air India spokesperson told PTI.
Efforts to ensure normalcy at the airports have also been taken, he said.
A section of Air India employee unions had on Thursday announced a two-hour walkout, effective from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, to protest delay in payment of salaries.
Aviation Industry Employees Guild (AIEG) and Air Corporation Employees Union (ACEU) have also threatened to boycott Friday’s turn-around committee meeting between the management and the unions.
In June-end, the airline’s management had agreed to pay salaries to its lower grade employees by 3 July.
