KARACHI: Joint Action Committee and Air League on Wednesday held separate protests against the privatization of Pakistan International Airline (PIA).
Although the employees of PIA continue to protest against the privatization of the national airline, Joint Action Committee and Air League CBA seemed to be at poles apart today. Despite the ban on protests inside the premises of the head office by the PIA administration, Joint Action Committee held a protest in front of the head office today. The protest was attended by the representative of all the associations of the employees, pilots and officers. The speakers said on this occasion that privatization was an economic murder of the employees.
Joint Action Committee alleged that the government had attempted to sabotage the protest and create a wedge among the employees through its supported CBA.
Speakers at the Air League CBA said while addressing the protest that the privatization of the national airline will never be allowed.
