Trouble for expats??

Recommended Posts

 here is some more to the story:


  ”We feel the management has had more than enough time to replace the expats with Indian national pilots. We therefore demand that all expats be released immediately,” the union said in a statement. The exclusivity provisions begin May 1 but the union said all training and currency activity involving non-Indian pilots was to stop April 16. The airline has rejected the demands at all levels.

In a statement, the airline said Jet Airways “is an equal opportunities employer” and is “diverse in race, gender, caste, creed or religion ... Jet Airways is committed to offer equal opportunities to all pilots and follows a structured plan for their recruitment based on business outlook.” The union also cited a confrontation between a non-Indian pilot and a wheelchair passenger whose personal chair was incorrectly loaded as baggage. The passenger claimed the pilot was aggressive and abusive toward him because retrieving the chair caused a departure delay, but it did not directly explain what his nationality had to do with the fracas. "The safety of our passengers and pilots is of prime importance and these kind of issues cannot be tolerated at all,” the union statement said. “The expats are also a huge drain on the company's and the nation's finances."  from AV herald
