National Aviation Guild (NAG) on Wednesday claimed in the Madras High Court that striking pilots of Jet Airways were being threatened that the Essential Services Maintenance Act would be invoked against them.
Senior counsel V Prakash made a mention before a Division Bench, comprising Justice D Murugasen and Justice Jaichandren, seeking "some relief".
The Guild was told to file a petition. The NAG said it contemplated filing a petition. However, it did not do so.
Pilots of the airline went on strike to press for reinstatement of two pilots who were terminated from service.
