Direct Aviation Ministry To Revisit Pay Cut: AI Engineers To PM

New Delhi:  Aircraft maintenance engineers (AMEs) of Air India have asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to direct the Civil Aviation Ministry to revisit the “discriminatory” pay cut revision.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, two associations of engineers, the All India Aircraft Engineers Association and the Air India Aircraft Engineers Association, said, “Kindly direct the Ministry of Civil Aviation to revisit the discriminatory pay cut revision taken to mitigate the impact of the pandemic ensuring compassion and equality of treatment remain the most important ingredient.

“It is quite disheartening that when the entire world has taken you as an unprecedented example in good governance, ethical and logical thinking and compassion for the whole world, our own Air India management defied it by misinforming the Civil Aviation Minister and his secretariat to arrive at unethical and discriminatory pay cut being recommended for us which has minimal effect for them but has spelt disaster on us.”

The associations pointed out, “The patronising attitude of the higher management towards virtually redundant executives (re-employed post retirement) continued on the matter of pay cut too.”

While an aircraft engineer earns less, his salary has been cut by Rs 20,000, while a retired executive whose emoluments are Rs 1.8 lakh per month, his salary has been cut by only Rs 18,000, they pointed out.
