Thai Airways International Plc's labor union said Friday that it had nothing to do with a group of employees reportedly planned to stage a rally tomorrow to voice their disagreement with the management's decision to give employees a 6 percent across the board pay rise and a bonus.
The management, however, denied that there would be a protest by dissenting workers and that THAI flight operations and services would not be affected.
THAI union leader Damrong Waikanee said he could not say for sure whether operations would be disrupted and passengers would be affected or not by the planned protest.
THAI acting president Mrs Usanee Saengsingkaew assured that THAI operations would not be disrupted and passengers would not be affected as the management had been in regular consultations with the union.
Representatives of the management met with union leaders on Thursday to discuss the union's demands for pay rise and bonus payment and special allowances.
THAI's third quarter performance report to the SET shows that it registered gross revenue of 44,126 million baht with 836 million baht loss compared to 3,403 million baht loss for the same period in 2015.
For the fourth quarter, it was predicted that THAI would make a net profit of 1.3 billion baht.
