Authorities sacked the General Manager of a garments unit in Gazipur on Thursday following a wave of agitation from workers.

Police said the workers of Viela Textile at Tongi’s Sataish area called a strike and began to demonstrate from around 8:30am.

They demanded to have the Eid holidays increased to 10 days from the usual seven and the dismissal of General Manager Razzak for his abusive behaviour.

Police rushed to the spot and managed to bring the situation under control.

Assistant Superintendent of Police in Gazipur industrial zone 2, ASM Shamsur Rahman said the authorities have decided to give in to both demands.

The factory was later announced shut down for the day and the workers left the vicinity.
