Airports Authority of Iindia employees may go on strike from 1st May

Essential services at major airports across the country may be affected from May one, with Airports Authority of India (AAI) employees on Monday threatening to go on an indefinite strike alleging that the management was "transferring" staffers from Delhi and Mumbai airports.
Of the about 4,000 AAI employees at Delhi and Mumbai, around 3,000 have declined to join the GMR-led Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) and the GVK-led Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), who are operating the airports after they were privatised in 2006, as job security was not guaranteed to them by the private operators.
About 1,000 employees at these airports have either taken VRS or accepted transfers. "From May 1, no employees will join their work place at the airports across the nation, as the management has turned a deaf ear to our demands of not to transfer the AAI employees of Delhi and Mumbai airports to other centres," M K Ghoshal, General Secretary Airports Authority Employees Union (AAEU) told the news agency.
Alleging that the management was "forcing" the employees of Delhi and Mumbai airports to accept VRS or face transfers as both the airports were privatised, the AAEU members have been staging a 'Satyagrah Dharna' at the AAI headquarters here and across the nation for past one week.
"But management has not responded to our demands, instead they are unilaterally transferring the employees to other centres in violation of Court order to not transfer anyone as the last date of accepting VRS is yet to expire," Ghoshal said, adding if they want, they could resolve the matter with mutual talks.
The AAEU also alleged that the tripartite committee, which was formed to look into the matters related to employees after both the airports were given in private hands in 2006, has not given its decision in the matter.
The AAEU leaders also alleged that medical and some other benefits for the employees were being withdrawn as "private operators are unable to pay the medical expenses which is violation of a Supreme Court judgement".
