Air India Express union alleges unfair labour practices, seeks intervention of labour commissioner

NEW DELHI,(PTI): Air India Express’ cabin crew union has alleged unfair labour practices by the airline, including in issuance of charge sheets to its members, and sought the intervention of the labour commissioner to resolve the issues.

The Air India Express Employees Union (AIXEU), which is affiliated with the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, has written a letter to the Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) in this regard.

The communication also comes at a time when conciliation proceedings are going on before the CLC (C) on the disputes between the cabin crew members and the airline management.

The union alleges that the management’s actions are detrimental to fostering positive industrial relations. Union in their letter dated 28 June, said,“… their actions are spoiling the industrial relations already affected by their unfair labour practices and violations of labour legislation,”

Among the specific grievances outlined, the union claims that charge sheets were issued to cabin crew members who took sick leave from May 6 to 8th, and that disciplinary actions are being initiated selectively against union members.

The controversy follows a previous incident on May 7, when approximately 200 cabin crew members staged a strike against alleged mismanagement at the Tata Group-owned airline, resulting in widespread flight cancellations.

Subsequently, the airline management terminated the services of 25 cabin crew members and issued warnings to others to resume work promptly or face similar consequences.

The strike concluded on May 9 after a conciliation meeting facilitated by the CLC (C), during which the termination letters were retracted.

In their latest communication, the union attributes these issues to what they describe as the management’s monopolistic and uncompromising behavior. The union claimed that the issues had occurred “due to the monopoly and adamancy behaviour of the management”. They have urged the CLC (C) to intervene and address the ongoing challenges faced by the cabin crew members.
