400 Air India pilots reject talks, to go on leave
Around 400 Air India pilots, who threatened to go on mass sick leave to protest the airline’s decision to cut their incentives, on Saturday rejected the management’s offer for talks and said they will stick to their agitation plan.
Senior executive pilots and their juniors have decided not to take part in the negotiations with the management on Sunday, a pilot said.
While 400 senior executive pilots will go on sick leave en masse, 700 others are still discussing their options.
“We all are going on mass leave. Pilots will not report for duty for coming days. This was followed today (Saturday) also,” said Captain V K Bhalla, who leads the agitating pilots.
