Workers also staged demonstrations in front of the mill gate

Several thousand workers of Amin Jute Mill continued their work abstention for the third consecutive day on Wednesday.

They are demanding that their outstanding wages be paid along with the implementing the wage commission.  

Office Secretary of Amin Jute Mill CBA Md Kamal Uddin told Dhaka Tribune that wages of some 4,000 workers of Amin Jute Mill have remained unpaid for the last 12 weeks.

"To press home their demands, the workers have abandoned their posts indefinitely. They have burned tyres and halted a train that plies the Chittagong-Nazirhat route. 

“Besides, workers blocked off the Muradpur-Hathazari Road for several hours," said Kamal.

He added that the workers also staged demonstrations in front of the mill gate.

The workers' leaders also threatened to go for even tougher programs if their demands are not met.

There are a total of nine state-owned jute mills in Chittagong.
