Airport Staff begin indefinite strike today over attempts by board to shield incompetent Managing Director

Workers of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) will today embark on a strike to protest against the Managing Director Mr Yaw Kwakwa who they said is being shielded.

According to a statement directed to staff of the Airport, they are withdrawing their services on February 26 until further notice.

They say the strike has become important because the Board of the Airport want to “shelve the report of an investigative committee comprising the Ministry of Aviation, the Board, Senior Management, and the Public Services Workers Union which confirms the allegations of mismanagement and abuse of office levelled against the Managing Director, Mr Yaw Kwakwa”.

Affected services at the Airport shall include;  Screening of pre-board passengers and access control,  Fire/Safety cover for all aircraft, Water supply and sewage treatment and Public announcement and flight display.
