Air India unions write to CMD on 'inordinate delay' in salary disbursement to engineers

New Delhi:  There has been an inordinate delay in the disbursement of salaries to aircraft maintenance engineers and executives working for Air India Engineering Services Limited (AIESL), claimed two unions in a letter to the airline's Chairman and Managing Director Rajiv Bansal on Wednesday.

The AIESL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India.

In the letter, All India Aircraft Engineers' Association and Air India Aircraft Engineers' Association requested Bansal to address the issue of salary delay on priority basis.

"It is very much heartbreaking and devastating to know that despite facing 40 per cent unilateral pay cut, AIESL employees are again being discriminated and are left high and dry without salaries while their counterparts in Air India/Alliance Air/Air India Express were paid salaries on 8th January itself," the letter noted.

It said this decision to pay salaries to one set of employees while inducing "inordinate delay" in disbursement of salaries of AIESL employees is leading to further resentment and unrest among the latter.

"This is also against the conditions of our transfer from Air India to AIESL which has been communicated earlier also to the management," it noted.
