Police were deployed in the factory area to avoid any unpleasant situation on Saturday afternoon, July 17, 2021Dhaka Tribune

The workers said the demonstration will continue until the demands are met

Hundreds of readymade garment workers once again blocked the busy Dhaka-Gazipur Road on Saturday, demanding the immediate release of their salaries and other dues.

The workers of "Style Craft Garment" took to the streets in the morning, disrupting traffic on the busy route. The road soon witnessed a long tailback, causing inconvenience to hundreds of commuters.

The protesters claimed the factory management has not paid them salaries for the past seven months. The factory has some 700 employees and 5,000 workers.

Workers of the factory complained that the authority announced to pay the dues on Thursday but they eventually failed to do that. 

The workers further added that the demonstration will continue until the demands are met.

Meanwhile, additional police have been deployed in the factory area to avoid any unpleasant situation. 

Gazipur Metropolitan Industrial Police Inspector Sameer Chandra Sutradhar said: “The workers tend to get paid only after they go on strike. This has now become the norm in this factory.”
