More than 1,000 members from the state enterprise labor union of Thai Airways Public Company Limited will join the demonstration to be organized by the Peoples Alliance for Democracy at the Government House on March 14. They are opposing the government's privatization policy.
The chief of the union, Mr. Somsak Srinuan, said that the union would send a letter to every unit of its company. The letter requests the officials to take leave from work so that they can gather at the Government House on March 14. He insisted that more than 1,000 members would certainly join this demonstration.
The Permanent Secretary to the Transport Ministry, Mr. Wanchai Sarathoothat, views that the officials have the rights to temporarily leave their duties, but he sees that Thai Airways and its passengers might be affected from this action.
