Workers of PHP Steel Mills Ltd demanding a pay hike observed a four-hour work abstention at the factory premises on Sunday. 

Later, they returned to work following assurance from the factory authorities of fulfilling their demand within a month. 

Demanding salary increase, the workers began abstaining from work at 7am and took position on the factory premises. But they returned to work at 11am, after holding a tripartite meeting with the factory authorities, with mediation of the police. 

According to Industrial Police, some 1,600 workers, both permanent and casual, work at the factory, located at Kumira area under Sitakunda upazila of Chittagong.

Talking to the Dhaka Tribune, Delwar Hossain, officer-in-charge of Sitakunda police station, said the workers observed work abstention for four hours demanding a pay rise. 

"On information, we rushed to the scene and held a meeting with representatives of the striking workers, in presence of the factory authorities. Later, the factory authorities assured them of fulfilling their demand, and the workers called off their work abstention programme," said Delwar, adding that the situation is now under control, without any untoward incident occurring.
