The Thai Airways International (THAI) labour union met chairman Ampon Kitti-ampon yesterday to make a list of demands that stopped short of calling for his resignation. 

If the demands are not discussed or met at THAI's next board meeting on Feb 8, the union will have to decide on further action, said Jaemsri Sukchoterat, the union's chairwoman.

The meeting follows a one-day strike by about 400 THAI ground service staff at Suvarnabhumi airport on Saturday. The stoppage delayed dozens of flights and affected hundreds of passengers.
