"Let Down By Management": Air India Pilots Demand Vaccine, Threaten Strike
The pilots of Air India have threatened strike if pan-India vaccination camps are not held for them. In a letter to the management today they have questioned why they were excluded from the vaccination camps for 18-45 year age group held by the management.
The vaccine camps at a few bases, they said, were held for employees doing desk jobs and the majority opting to work from home.
Accusing the top management of making a "mockery of pilots discharging their duties in a risky environment", the pilots said they have gone "above and beyond during this pandemic, risking life and limb to ensure our citizens' well-being".
The pilots said they feel "let down by the self-serving approach" of the management which only handed them "a massive discriminatory pay cut" in return for their services.
