Tuba Sangram Committee calls strike Saturday

  • Published at 11:47 am August 7th, 2014

The Tuba Group Sramik Sangram Committee has called strike for Saturday in all garment factories across the country.

The Sangram Committee called the strike in protest of arrest of Committee Convenor Moshrefa Mishu on Thursday, Shahidul Islam Sabuj, member of the Committee, told Dhaka Tribune.

He said: "We will go for tougher programme if the Moshrefa Mishu is not released within Saturday. The programme may be indefinite strike."

The announcement came after police broke the hunger strike of Tuba Group workers by forcing them out from the factory on Thursday afternoon. Police used rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons to disperse the workers.

Earlier in the day, Moshrefa Mishu announced an indefinite strike in the factories after police ousted the Tuba workers from their factory where they had been observing a hunger strike in demand of their dues.

Police picked up Moshrefa Mishu soon after the announcement from the capital’s Badda area.

"The indefinite strike announcement by Mishu is not valid now. It is our new programme," said Sabuj.

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is paying the salaries of last two months to Tuba Group workers.

Till Thursday afternoon, around 1000 out of 1,458 workers have received the partial dues from the BGMEA.

However, the Tuba Group Sramik Sangram Committee demanded the dues of last three months to be paid at one time.
