The union, which claims a representation of 3,000 members across Mumbai, alleged that the management has violated a conciliation agreement signed with its representatives in February 2001. And as a part result the Air India employees has yet again threatened to strike work from December 22 to protest management’s proposed move. The claim is that the management, while inviting tenders for staff/cabin crew transportation, has deleted some pick-up and drop points in contravention to the settlement conditions. The matter (strike) is expected to come up for a reconciliation meeting with the Regional Labour Commissioner on December 18. The Indian carrier seems to be in deep waters again.
