Air India pilots seek salary arrears

Air India may be planning to cut the salary of its pilots by at least 15% but the latter have bowled a googly at the Maharaja. The airline has for past two years been paying 75% of salary to a majority of its employees, including pilots. Now, the pilots have asked the airline to immediately cough up the 25% arrears and pay it to them with interest. The Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA), union of erstwhile Indian Airlines pilots, held an emergency meeting last week to discuss the proposed pay cut. While this proposal was thrown out of the cockpit window, they instead decided to ask for payment of the 25% pay cut the airline has implemented on an ad hoc basis since July 2012.
