RMG workers demand bonus, arrears before Eid
Ready made garments (RMG) workers yesterday urged the industry owners to pay their salary arrears, overtime, bonus and salary of the current month ahead of Eid-ul Azha.
They made the demand at a human chain organised by Bangladesh Garments Sramik Oikya Parishad in front of Jatiya Press Club in the capital.
Speakers said owners of many garment industries usually pay their workers partially depriving the workers of enjoying the Eid occasion.
Mohammad Delwar Hossain Khan, coordinator of the parishad, presided over the programme while Towhidur Rahman, president of Bangladesh Apparel Workers Federation, and Rokeya Sultana, president of Bangladesh Garment Sramik Jote, addressed it.
