Indian employees greet 'Shame' in protest

New Delhi: In a novel form of protest, employees of state-owned airline Indian who have been agitating for a wage hike and career progression, today sent 'Shame' cards to members of the management instead of greetings.
The employees, led by Air Corporation Employees' Union, have been on a relay hunger strike for the past nine days to demand implementation of the 1997 agreement on wage revision and career progression.
"We are capable of causing complete bandh of Indian airlines all over the country, but do not want to cause inconvenience the passengers", a union spokesman warned.
Blaming the management for delaying the implementation of the agreement for ten years, he said it was shameful that "nothing works unless work is stopped and people are harassed".
