Earlier prime mover/ trailer workers abstained from work and began an indefinite strike from Saturday morning to push home their five-point demand.  

Their demand includes receiving appointment letters, establishing a minimum wage structure, and reinstating some of their fellow workers terminated by a transport company.

Shipment of export-import containers between Chittagong Port and 19 private inland container depots (ICDs) remained suspended due to the strike.

According to the Bangladesh Inland Container Depot Association (BICDA), there are around 8,000 prime movers-trailers across the country.
