Employees of Thai Airways Nepal office have given a 15-day ultimatum to the management to fulfill their demands that were placed about seven months back.
The management has been ignoring our demands, so we have given an ultimatum this time, said president of Thai Airways Employee Workers Union Ambar Bahadur Paudel in a press meet today.
The trade union had put a seven-point demand to the management on January 23, 2012. The demands included salary hike of up to Rs 13,000, gratuity, bonus and others. “Our demands are genuine. We are demanding the same type of treatment that the company provides its employees at the head office in Thailand,” he said
They have also demanded the company to bear the tax burden. “Thai Airways has been bearing the tax burden of employees of its Thailand-based office,” he said, adding that the company should not be partial to employees on the basis of their nationalities.
The management and employees of Thai Airways have had talks three times in the past but the management has not addressed the problems. “If the management does not listen to our demands we will protest,” he said. The protest plan will be decided later.
