SATS Must Recognise Union: CITU
BENGALURU: Members of CITU and KIAL Service Providing Employees Union on Sunday alleged that Singapore Airlines Terminal Service (SATS), that employs 2,200 people, has failed to recognise the union and has also filed false charges against the union leaders to break the union.
Pratap Simha, State Secretary, CITU alleged, “The KIAL was formed after acquiring land from farmers and children of these farmers were appointed on contract basis as ground handling staff for jobs like providing ladders to passengers, packing, and security checking. They should be paid minimum wage of Rs 6,750 but are given only RS 5,500.”
CITU demanded that the workers union be recognised, workers paid minimum wages, and their services be regularised.
