RMG workers block road in Savar
A group of readymade garment (RMG) workers blocked the road in Savar’s Birulia demanding outstanding dues on Sunday morning.
The workers claimed that at least five of their colleagues were injured after being assaulted by police in front of Sark Knitwear Limited garments.
They said the authorities announced shutting down the factory for an indefinite period in the morning instead of paying salaries of 500 workers.
This prompted the workers to block the Savar-Mirpur regional road, causing massive traffic gridlock on both sides, reports UNB.
Police and the workers are facing off in the area.
Savar Model Police Station’s Officer-in-Charge (Operation) Zakaria Hossain said they are trying to contact the factory owners for clearing dues of the workers.
Sark Knitwear Limited Managing Director Md Jubaidur Rahaman (Rana) could not be reached for comments despite repeated attempts.
