Labour trouble at Delhi airport’s cargo terminal has disrupted supplies of major white goods companies in the country, a setback that is particularly painful amid festival season sales across physical and online platforms.

Labourers employed by JAC Air Services have been on ‘Go Slow’ since October 7, over wage issues. JAC has been contracted by Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management, the India unit of the Turkish ground handling major.

“Despite the aviation industry being one of the most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic situation, some outsourced contract employees have been demanding wage increase and bonus payments,” said an official from Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management, in response to Moneycontrol’s query.
