The Ghana Airport Company Limited’s Divisional Union of the Public Services Workers’ Union of the Trade Union Congress, has directed all general staff of the Kotoka International Airport to withdraw their services from 6 am on Friday, February 26, until further notice.
This, according to the Union, is due to the Company’s Board’s attempt to shelve the report of an investigative committee which allegedly confirms the Managing Director, Yaw Kwakwa is guilty of mismanagement and abuse of office.
The investigative committee comprised the Aviation Ministry, the Board, Senior Management, and the Public Service’s Workers’ Union.
In a press statement dated February 25, the Union says the only way to turn the fortunes of the Company around is when the Managing Director is removed from his post.
Till then, the general public, especially air operators are being notified of the withdrawal of services.
Affected services include; screening of pre-board passengers and access control, fire/safety cover for all aircrafts, water and sewage treatment, and public announcement and flight display.
Meanwhile, Ghana is expected to take delivery of its second consignment of Covid-19 vaccine from India.
The AstraZeneca vaccines are expected to come on Emirates airline.
