The Chief of Staff, Joseph Debrah, invited leadership of the unionized striking workers to a meeting at the Flag Staff house after an earlier attempt to get them to call off their strike on Saturday failed.

The workers grinded domestic flights across the country to a halt when they embarked on a strike action to press home demands for all the release of the 640 acres of land belonging to the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority but has been taken over by government.

Just as they turned down an offer of a 20-acre land from government on Saturday, reports say the leadership of the aggrieved workers again refused a 40-acre land offered by government, leading to breakdown in talks with the Chief of Staff on Monday.

 

Spokesperson of the GCAA staff, Michael Atiemo made it clear in an interview with Pulse.com.gh that they would not accept any offer less than the 640 acres of land belonging to the Authority.

“We told the Chief of Staff even before the meeting that we will not accept anything less than the 640 acres of land belonging to the authority.”

The staff say they are demanding the immediate release of the lands in order to install emergency equipment needed for the efficient delivery of aviation services to airline companies and air travellers.
