Airport staff to strike again March 15 if. . .

Workers of the Ghana Airport Company Limited staged a protest in July, 2020
Staff of the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) have served another notice they will embark on an indefinite strike from Monday, March 15 if authorities do not address their concerns by then.

Staff temporarily halted a strike action on Friday, February 26 after the Ministers-designate for Employment and Labour Relations, National Security and Transport talked them out of their action.

The action had disrupted local and international flight schedules with many passengers stranded.

They returned to the negotiation table after a firm assurance from the ministers-designate that their concerns will be addressed.

The workers are demanding the removal of the Managing Director of the Company, Yaw Kwakwa, whom they accuse of mismanagement.

They also allege that he is “slowly killing the company”.

“Until this is resolved, we will not go back,” said Chairman of the Airport Workers Union Abdul Issakah Bamba on Onua TV on Friday at the start of the halted strike.

“Our services on both local and international flights have been withdrawn and what will solve the problem is for the MD to leave office now.”

But after suspending the strike, the workers have come out with a new timeline, which lists March 15 as date on which to escalate their industrial action if no action is seen of government by then.
