Accra Airport On Strike

Tue Oct 18, 2005 6:51 pm

Accra airport went on strike yesterday for 7 hours.
the reason for the strike is over pay for the ground handling company.

''the staff locked up the Managing Director (MD) together with other senior staff members including the local union leaders as well as some clearing agents at the cargo village for about two hours until the Police was called in.''

Soups-

Any news on GIA as they approach their first flight? I hear you are closely affiliated with the operation.
