Staff strike against airport authority

Mumbai: Passengers using Mumbai domestic airport came across an uneasy situation on Saturay, when almost 250 ground staff went on strike against the airport authority. The housekeeping workers were angry as three of their colleagues were fired after they allegedly picked up a fight with the security personnel.
According to sources, the company that manages the housekeeping workers and share holders of Mumbai airport GVK discontinued the services of three ground staff after the fight.
BJP MLA Sudhakar Deshmukh reached the spot by 4 pm and supported the protesting staff. “These ground staff personnel handle two major airlines at Mumbai — SpiceJet and Indigo airlines. The agitation started at 2 pm on Saturday at the parking area of domestic airport which is in front of the departure area,” a source said.
