Talks between government officials led by the Chief of Staff and the leadership of workers of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority over the invasion of lands belonging to the GCAA, have stalled.
Citi Business News’ sources say the breakdown in negotiations followed a rejection of the 40 acres of land offered by government for the installation of an HF equipment.
The current offer is however higher than the 25 acres initially offered to the staff out of the total of 640 acres of land belonging to the Authority.
Citi Business News also understands government was willing to give the authority more lands at Prampram in addition to the proposed 40 acres it was willing to give away which is close to Adenta.
The workers of GCAA have been agitating the encroachment of lands belonging to the GCAA which they contend has made it difficult to install an HF facility worth over 600,000 Euros.
Earlier, they had also warned of a possible judgement debt to the GCAA and the country at large following the failure to install the equipment by today, July 11, 2016.
Meanwhile Citi Business News has learnt the leadership of the staff union is currently locked up in a meeting weighing their options after the meeting with the Chief of Staff ended inconclusively.
It is unclear whether the workers will resume the strike that they embarked on last Saturday to protest the offer provided by the government through the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.
Despite the controversies surrounding the invasion of lands belonging to the GCAA, authorities are confident a lasting solution will be arrived at.
The Director General of the GCAA, Simon Allotey maintains that the GCAA will continue to work by conforming to international best standards in protecting and ensuring safety at the airport.
