RMG workers protest ‘false’ cases against fellows

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

Bangladesh Garments Sramik Sanghati yesterday demanded withdrawal of false cases against their fellows which have been filled after the protest.

Workers formed a human chain in front of the National Press Club in the capital yesterday. They also demanded trail of the killer of a protester named Sumon.  Speakers said, “The garment workers took the street in the beginning of the January seeking higher wages and overhauling the wage structure announced by the government. Worker demonstrated in Gazipur, Hemayetpur, Savar, Ashulia, Narayanganj areas. During the protest, police shot Sumon Mia. Soon after forming, a new government the first shot dead by bullet is a garment worker, which is very condemnable.   

Speakers urged the government to ensure the safety of readymade garment (RMG) workers who demonstrated over wage disparity. They demanded the release of arrested workers and urged factory owners to rescind the suspension of the protesters.

Several factories sacked over 100 workers, for taking part in illegal strikes and posted their names and pictures on a notice board. The arrest and suspension of workers will not do the sector any good.

Condemning the arrest leaders of the labour organisations said that the name mentioned in the cases - almost all of the workers have been terminated. Among the accused there are a large number of female workers.

 After  the workers protest, several factory authorities filed cases against 2,000 workers for theft, vandalism.
