AI Express Cabin Crew Calls off Strike; Airline to Reinstate 25 Terminated Employees

1 min read

Air India Express on Thursday agreed to withdraw termination letters issued to 25 cabin crew members. The move came following a meeting of Air India Express management with the protesting crew, convened by the Chief Labour Commissioner at 2 pm today. Following the move, a section of Air India Express cabin crew has decided to withdraw the strike and join back for duty.

Earlier in the day, the airline terminated the contract of at least 25 senior crew members who “reported sick” a day ago, even as the carrier continued to reel from flight cancellations since Tuesday night.

In a statement, the Chief Labour Commissioner said that after detailed discussions, deliberation and persuasion, the representative of the union (members of the cabin crew) has agreed that all the cabin crew members who have reported sick will report for duty with a fitness certificate immediately.

“On appeal of the Chief Labour Commissioner (Central), the management agreed to reinstate 25 cabin crew who were terminated on May 7 and 8, 2024 for reporting sick as a concerted action immediately,” it said.
