Staff Protest to Disrupt Flights in India

The Airports Authority Employees Union (AAEU), the largest union of its kind in India, has enlisted its members to take a one-day causal leave from work in protest of the Kolkata and Chennai airports.  The union believes the government is going to move ahead with the privatization plans, despite the fact that an official panel recommended against it.  The protest will be conducted by the fire fighters and engineers at more than 120 airports.

The walkout of the fire and engineering personnel would normally interrupt operations at the airports, but civilian fire fighters and defense personnel have been called in to replace the protesting staff so airport operations will run as usual.  Union officials say that although flight operations at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport might not be affected, the handling of aircraft at other airports could be affected.
