Air India’s newly appointed chief executive officer and managing director Campbell Wilson is expected to meet employees residing in colonies that the airline owned in Mumbai and Delhi this week.

Wilson is expected to meet representatives of Air India’s unions in order to expedite the process of moving out of these housing estates, multiple people aware of the development said.

“Despite Air India announcing reimbursement of expenses to employees to vacate the former colonies, employees are still not ready to move and the management wants to meet with them to come to a solution,” an Air India official said.

He added that Wilson is looking to work on the issue personally in order to resolve the situation as soon as possible and not wait for a court settlement.

The Air Corporation Employees Union, Aviation Industry Employees Guild and All India Service Engineers Association had gone on strike in November last year protesting against the move. The issue is now pending before the Bombay High Court.

The Bombay High Court is likely to hear the petition filed by the Air India employee's union on August 10, no verdict has been announced by the High Court yet.
