Resolution committee invites pilots' union for talks

Justice Dharmadhikari committee was set up to resolve the strife between Air India pilots and management


Sweta Ranjan | July 1, 2011

The justice Dharmadhikari committee, set up to resolve the issue of integration of staff of the erstwhile Indian airlines and Air India into Air India Ltd, has invited the Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA) to attend its meeting on July 5.

The commitee has asked ICPA to send three office bearers for the meeting.

A letter from the committee's member secretary Syed Nasir Ali reads, “You are requested to meet the Committee for interaction with regard to issues raised by you in the written submission.  It is desired that maximum of 3 (Three) office bearers of the ICPA, may attend the interaction session with the Committee Members...”

The move comes in the aftermath of teh ICPA writing to Ali, who is a director at the ministry of civil aviation, to organise a meaningful dialogue with thepilots to settle the issue.
The ICPA had written, “Please find enclosed herewith various documents relating to disparity between the pilots of erstwhile Indian Airlines Ltd. and pilots of erstwhile Air India Ltd. We trust that our said presentation will be considered by the committee on merits which will go a long way in solving all the problems/difficulties being experienced by the pilots of our prestigious national carrier Air India ltd. (erstwhile Indian Airlines Ltd.).”

The Justice Dharmadhikari committee was setup to prepare a report on the demands of the pilots for wage parity. The committee has been given five months and is assigned to amicably address and resolve the strife between the pilots and the management.
