About 1,100 unionised pilots of Jet Airways (India) Ltd have deferred by a fortnight a plan to abstain from work from Monday in a relief to the troubled carrier, as well as its passengers.
The pilots union, National Aviator’s Guild (NAG), took the decision after the airline management paid the remaining 12.5% of their December salary on Saturday. The pilots had earlier received 87.5% of their salaries for December.
The NAG members who organized an ‘open house’ on Sunday afternoon have now asked the management to clear their unpaid salaries by April 15, said a Mumbai-based Jet Airways pilot. The pilot, who is also a union member, spoke to Mint after the conclusion of an ‘open house’ meeting of the NAG to discuss the situation at the airline.
