Clear long-pending dues immediately: Air India pilot's body to Aviation Min

Indian Commercial Pilots Association informed the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) officials to clear their long-pending dues immediately and allow pilots to quit Air India with immediate effect.
A meeting was held on July 8 which was attended by Indian Pilot's Guild, officials of MoCA and the chairman and managing director of Air India.
"Firstly, we expressed our disapproval for trying to attack the frontline workers of Air India who worked during the peak of the pandemic. However, we expressed our willingness to support our CMD during these testing times in the interest of the airline, provided every employee of Air India shares the burden by taking a percentage cut on gross emoluments as per individual's income," the pilots union said.
The pilots have also suggested compulsory leave without pay on a month to month basis with a condition that if it is considered, it should also be applied across the board for all employees in line with market conditions.
"Secondly, if the above is not possible, we informed the MoCA officials to clear our long pending 25 per cent dues immediately and allow pilots to quit Air India with immediate effect," they said.
Air India pilots have also told the company that any pay cut has to be across the board as per market standards for all employees.
