    Unpaid Kingfisher employees approach move Labour Commissioner

    Mumbai : The harried employees of defunct Kingfisher Airline (KFA) today approached the office of Regional Labour Commissioner (RLC) in New Delhi, seeking its intervention over non-payment of salary dues.

    In a related development, the airline management failed to attend a meeting called by the RLC on the issue.

    Over 2,000 employees, not been paid for the last 18 months, had earlier been represented through Trade Union Coordination Centre at the RLC which had called KFA Chairman Vijay Mallya for a meeting today to discuss the issue.

    "Since Mallya or any of his management team executive did not turn up for the meeting, we were advised to approach the RLC directly so that conciliatory proceedings under the Industrial Dispute Act can take place," Kingfisher employee Anjan Kumar Deveshwar, who along with four other colleagues has petitioned the Labour Ministry, said here.

    "Our salary dues are pending since August 2012. The management is misleading us by saying it does not have funds and it is looking for investors. Kindly, intervene (in the issue) and direct Kingfisher Airline to pay us or terminate our services after paying compensation," the employees said in their petition to the RLC.

    The employees alleged the wife of one of their colleagues committed suicide last year due to financial hardship in the wake of non-payment of dues and added the salary issue needs serious attention from the government.

    The private airline is grounded since October 2012.

    Last week, the employees had appealed to cricketer Yuvraj Singh not to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the forthcoming edition of the IPL on "moral grounds."

    The Mallya-led RCB bought Yuvraj for a whopping Rs 14 crore during an auction in Bangalore last week.

    ^ And people are celebrating 14cr being paid to a single guy, like they were personally being paid. Most Indians are indeed fools.

    Paying crores to morons who already have hundreds of crores, and screwing the ones who deserved to be paid!

    Ban this shit called IPL - celebritydom and cricket has ruined things enough.

    Are you card-carrying member of AAP or any of the Communist parties??

    Only losers or simple-minded begrudge others getting paid for their skills.

    Malliya is at a fault, not Yuvi.

    Even that is not really enough to pay off the employees, I think he owes him 350 crores.

    The only bind here is moral, i.e can Mallya can live with himself and take a hit to his credibility, as they have already stated that legally the UB group doesnt have to pay KFA employees.
    So really no need to hate on ipl here, it's upto the employees to force some sort of settlement through some means, as bad as that may sound.

    Spending crores on a few, when thousands are owed their salaries - What about their dues? Only simple-minded fools would mistaken such a precedent/condition for AAPsim or communism. Are you a Yuvi or cricket fanboy :lol: ?

    "Yuvi" and others in RCB are worth crores. Why can't they take a higher moral ground and demand for whats right? The only "skill" which is on display here is sheer arrogance and greed.

    I am neither a fan of Cricket or Yuvi. I don't remember when was the last time I watched the game. But I know what is right and what is wrong, as per pragmatic view of the world.

    Why should Yuvi or any other cricketer of RCB do anything about it? If it was a matter of RCB staff not getting paid, then they might have protested. Kingfisher Airlines doesn't have no connection to Yuvi excepting their common owner. And why do every person who may be earning more or in better social position are always demanded to have high moral grounds when it comes to privileges? Those cricketers have worked hard and were found better than thousands to reach the place they are in and have a tiny window of about 10-15 years to make money as much as they can. Why does the socialist jholachhaps like you always quick to blame them. First be somebody worth having a notice and then do the same, and perhaps then you may claim to have others a moral high ground. the comment about their being 'worth crores' actually discloses more of your loser attitude. Couldn't you have said they are a more prominent members of society?

    it is the people like you who always find out convoluted reason to blame anybody in limelight. The same thing happened a few days ago when Salman/Madhuri were blamed for performing in Saifa in UP.

    The socialist logic always baffles me.
