Unionized staff of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority are set to have meeting with the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, today, Monday, 11 July 2016.

The irate workers grinded domestic flights to a halt on Saturday, after they  embarked on a strike to drive home demands for the release of the 640 acres of land belonging to the GCAA that has been encroached upon by government.

The Chief of Staff, whose intervention led to the resumption of domestic flight on Saturday afternoon, called the meeting to find an end to the impasse.

The workers had earlier rejected the Lands Minister, Nii Osah Mills’ proposal to release 20 acres of land for the use of GCAA.

Domestic airlines Starbow say they have lost as much as GHC150,000 after they were forced to cancel three flights to Kumasi.

Africa World Airlines also had to refund monies to disappointed customers and explain to others why their flights had to be cancelled.

 

The GCAA staff are however not ready to compromise on their stance.

“The Chief of Staff is mandated to meet us on Monday morning to see the best way forward, and we will be there to see what he has to say. But we made it clear to him that we want every acre of the 640 acres of land government has taken from us. And we are not ready to back down on that”, spokesperson of the GCAA staff Michael Kwapong Atiemo said.
