Lufthansa India aims to reach out-of-court settlement with 100 terminated staff

Mumbai: A petition was filed by Senior Advocate Mohan Bir Singh under Sections 2-A, 9 (A), 10 (1) and 33 of the Industrial Disputes Act. The matter is set to be heard on Friday. They have also represented to the Ministry of Labour.

In response to a notice sent by the employees to the company, Lufthansa’s legal team has said that it is reviewing the issues raised by the terminated employees, said a source close to the development.

The employees had alleged that they were terminated without prior notice, and were not given job security even after signing a leave-without-pay agreement for two years.

Sources added that Lufthansa’s legal team indicated that the airline is considering the offer of settlement discussions with employee representatives. An employee requesting anonymity said that because of the “terminated” stamp on their resume, none of the employees who were asked to leave were able to find a job in the aviation industry.

BusinessLine has learned that the employees have also made a presentation to the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) over the issue of termination.
