The National Labour Commission has secured an interlocutory injunction to block an intended strike by workers of the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL).
A High Court order given by Justice Kweku Ackaah Boafo, said workers are proscribed from embarking on what the court held as an illegal strike.
“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,” the directive said.
The workers had served notice that upon the expiration of a 14-day ultimatum, effective Monday, October 19, 2020, other actions such as laying down of tools will kick in to demand the removal of Yaw Kwakwa as MD.
The workers accused Mr Kwakwa of mismanagement.
In a petition to President Akufo-Addo through the chief of staff, sighted by Kasapa News, the workers argue “The Managing Director since assumption of office 2 years ago has demonstrated gross incompetence, insensitivity and lack of understanding of the critical Aviation Industry and therefore his continuous stay in office will further derail the progress of the company.”
