Airport security personnel resume work after brief strike
Personnel of Aviation Security (AVSEC) has resumed work after a brief strike on Wednesday morning.
The strike was as a result of information they had that some National Security Personnel intends storming the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on Wednesday morning after an altercation between AVSEC and National Security personnel on Tuesday night.
The AVSEC locked up the domestic departures side of the airport to protest over what they say was the violent conduct of some national security personnel.
A staff of AVSEC was said to have been beaten up by national security personnel when President John Evans Atta Mills arrived from the US on Tuesday.
A spokesman of AVSEC told the GNA that the Head of Aviation Security met the striking personnel and convinced them to resume work.
“They have assured us that everything is okay.”
He said he believed the action was as a result of “under-currents” from a similar incidence between AVSEC and national security personnel sometime ago.
