Two garment factories in Ashulia were shut down yesterday for an indefinite period following an ongoing protest over sacking 58 workers.

Workers of Shimultala's ESK Clothing Ltd and Jamgara area's Naba Knit Composite Ltd found closure notices in the entrance gates, which did not mention why the factories were closed indefinitely.

They had been protesting at what they deemed "unfair sacking" of 58 workers. They had been observing work abstention for few hours every day.

They alleged that the authorities concerned could not resolve the matter, rather shut down the factories indefinitely.

Adam, managing director of Naba Knit Composite Ltd, told Dhaka Tribune lack of orders forced them to lay off 30 workers from their factory. However, all their dues were cleared before they left, he added.

"We also banned use of mobile phones by the workers in factory premises, which may have caused them to protest," Adam remarked.

Additional police force has been deployed for avoiding any untoward incident in the area, said Sana Saminur Rahman, superintendent of Ashulia Industrial Police-1.
