A section of employees of Air India, including engineers, today went on a flash strike to protest delay in payment of salaries and problems relating to the working conditions of cabin crew, union leaders said.
There has been no impact of their “walkout” on flight operations, an Air India spokesperson said.
“We have begun a flash strike on delay in payment of salaries and the problems of the cabin crew, after the management refused to pay heed to our demands,” Air Corporation Employees Union (ACEU) General Secretary J B Kadian.
Air India had recently decided that the May salaries would be delayed by a week.
He said the management has also issued “gag orders” against leaders of all unions of Air India by asking them not to go public with their problems and termed the move as “anti -democratic”.
