Workers of GACL had served notice of laying down their tools on Monday, October 19, 2020, to force the appropriate authorities to yield to their demands.

But the Labour Commission went to court to compel the workers to rescind the decision.

The High Court in its order given by Justice Kweku Ackaah Boafo, directed that: “the Respondent Union herein whether by themselves, executives, officers, members, agents, servants, employees or other persons are restrained from embarking on the intended illegal strike action on Monday, 19th October 2020… It is hereby also ordered that the order shall be valid for ten (10) days”.

Staff of the Ghana Airport Company Limited have since July 2020 been protesting plants by the government to engage Turkish firm, TAV-Summa Consortium, as a strategic partner for expansion works at the Airport, coupled with allegations that the management of the Airport had been ceded to a private player.

According to the aggrieved workers, the said partnership with the Turkism firm, could render some of them jobless and possibly reduce the benefits they currently enjoy.
