Air India may sack 300 more striking pilots
"The pilots are on an illegal strike since May. How long do they (pilots) expect us to wait for them to resume duty? If the situation remains the same, then the rest (300) of pilots may also be terminated. But this decision will be taken by the Air India management," Ajit Singh told IANS.
"Not only has the illegal strike caused severe losses to the airline, but also wavered the trust of passengers from Air India. If they want to come back, then they are welcome."
When contacted, the striking aviators said they are studying the situation and are currently on the agitation.
"We are looking at the situation. We all are together in this and our unity would not break. Our only demand right now is the reinstatement of our sacked colleagues and recognition of our union," a senior committee member of the Indian Pilots Guild (IPG) - the now de-recognised union - told IANS.
