SpiceJet employees go on strike at Delhi airport demanding salary disbursement

A part of employees of SpiceJet airline went on strike at the Delhi airport on Friday, September 3, over issues related to reduced salaries, sources said. On inquiry, SpiceJet spokesperson clarified that the carrier's flight operations at the Delhi airport are functioning normally. "A section of employees working at the Delhi airport and having some issues have met senior officials and the matter is being resolved," the spokesperson said.

“On one hand, SpiceJet has bid for Air India and, on the other, they say they don’t have funds to pay full salaries or keep the employees on payroll. We served them a strike notice on Tuesday. They have 14 days now to resolve the issue,” said Arvind Sawant, president of Shiv Sena union Bharatiya Kamgar Sena. 

Covid’s second wave has hit SpiceJet so badly that the airline said it has been forced to partially outsource its ground handling operations at Mumbai airport to a private company.

Earlier, i.e  On June 3, there was medic coverage that SpiceJet ground staff went to loggerheads with the management at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) over the airline "uncharacteristically" asking 64 of its workers to surrender their airport entry passes at the end of their shifts.
