Indefinite strike by 7 Khulna jute mills workers


Khulna – Workers of seven state owned jute mills in Khulna went on an indefinite strike on Monday to press home their five-point demand.
The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and non-CBA Oikya Parishad of the seven jute mills — Crescent Jute Mills, Platinum Jute Mills, Khalispur Jute Mills, Star Jute Mills, Eastern Jute Mills, Jessore Jute Mills and Carpeting Jute Mills — enforced the strike from the morning.
The workers’ demands include adequate allocation to the jute industry, payment of arrears, formation of a wage board and stopping the move to privatise the state-owned jute mills.
Mohammad Sohrab Hossain, convener of the Oikya Parishad, said they would go for a road blockage programme on Tuesday if government fails to meet their demands.
Earlier on March 16, they announced an ultimatum to the government to meet their demands by April 3.
