NEW DELHI: Seven unions of Air India have warned the government against going ahead with its plan to privatise the airline.

The letter, jointly written by AI Air Corporate Employees’ Union, AI Employees’ Union, AI Aircraft Engineers’ Association, United Air India Officers’ Association, AI Engineers’ Association, AI Cabin Crew Association and AI Service Engineers’ Association, warns of “massive protests” if the Niti Aayog‘s suggestion to sell AI is implemented.
“We urge you not to accept the hurried recommendations by the Niti Aayog, and not to force the employees of Air India to agitate which will lead to industrial unrest and disharmony,” the organisations wrote in the letter dated Wednesday said, describing Niti Aayog a “spokesperson of the private sector”.
