Air India pilots have reached out to Ratan Naval Tata, Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons, in an online petition expressing their disappointment with the airline’s Human Resource department.
According to the petitioned statement, the pilots are not being treated with the respect and dignity they deserve as employees of Air India. Due to that their morale is lowered and they expressed concern that it may also affect the functioning of their duties to the best of their abilities.
The pilots expressed their commitment to working with the company to find solutions that would benefit all stakeholders, which is why they are seeking Tata’s assistance in addressing these issues and finding a solution that is fair and respectful to all parties involved.
In a joint letter to N Chandrasekaran, chairman, Tata Group, the Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association (ICPA) and the Indian Pilots’ Guild (IPG) are requesting his intervention in the HR policies of Air India.
They have described these policies as “draconian” and based on a “lack of trust”. The joint letter stated that the pilots were being subjected to unfair treatment, and the HR department was flouting the laws and regulations in place to protect employees’ rights.
The pilots’ appeal to Ratan Tata, who is highly respected for his leadership qualities and ethical practices, underscores the seriousness of the issue at hand. It remains to be seen how the Tata Group responds to the pilots’ plea and what actions it will take to address the concerns raised by the pilot bodies.
