Tata Group-owned Air India has decided to put on hold any salary revision for the ground staff until the Competition Commission of India (CCI) approves the merger with Vistara. Air India CEO and managing director Campbell Wilson sent this message out in an internal communication to the staff on Friday. After the CCI approval, compensation revisions will be paid retrospectively back to April 1, 2023, he assured the ground staff.
However, salaries and benefits of the flying staff, including pilots and cabin crew, will be revised in the next few days, Wilson said in the note reviewed by Business Standard. The CEO explained that the flying staff of Air India would not be affected by the merger with Vistara. The development comes in the backdrop of two Air India pilot unions protesting against the “rapid and regressive changes in service conditions” by the management.
