People suffer as jute mill workers demo for dues

Jute mill workers in Khulna and Dhaka staged demonstration yesterday demanding payment of their dues and arrears. In Dhaka jute mill workers blocked the Jatrabari intersection in the capital in the morning. The demonstrators took position on Jatrabari intersection from 8am and blocked the intersection, disrupting traffic and creating tailbacks. Police intervened and brought the situation under control around 10am, said Kazi Wazed, officer-in-charge of Jatrabari Police Station.

In Khulna a strike, enforced by workers of nine jute mills in Khulna region, is underway and production in the jute mills remain suspended. The workers will also observe road blockade programme from 4pm to 7pm, said Md Murad Hossain, convener of Jute Mill Workers League of Khulna-Jashore region.

The workers of Platinum Jute Mill halted production around 6pm on Sunday and then workers of other jute mills in Khulna and Jashore suspended their production.

Workers' wages of 11 weeks and other employees' salary of four months remained unpaid.

Earlier, it was decided in a meeting with the Ministry of Jute and Textiles and Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation that the outstanding wages of the workers will be paid within April 25. But the promise was not fulfilled.

On April 2, workers of state-owned jute mills observed a 72-hour strike in Khulna region to press home their nine-point demand.
