Pilots hold ground, reject Air India peace offer  

The 'striking' Air India executive pilots rejected on Sunday the olive branch of the management which offered to 'modify' the productivity-linked incentive cut and set up a committee to look into the issue. The pilots called the management offer "delaying tactics".
Speaking to The Indian Express, Capt V K Bhalla, a representative of the agitating pilots, said they would not hold talks with the management until it withdrew the order slashing productivity-linked incentives (PLI).
Refusing to specify the number of pilots that he represents, Bhalla dismissed the talks held by Air India CMD Arvind Jadhav with Mumbai-based executive pilots of erstwhile Indian Airlines today. In a conference held late in the evening in Mumbai after the talks, Capt R Sunnil and Capt Tony Davis said striking executive pilots of Air India agreed to resume work from tomorrow after reaching an agreement with the management. But Bhalla said, "These pilots were never a part of the strike." Air India spokesperson Jitender Bhargava claimed that pilots in Mumbai were speaking to their counterparts from other stations individually as executive pilots did not have any union.
