Ashulia RMG factories reopen Friday
Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) decided to reopen readymade garment factories in Ashulia on Friday after a three-day shutdown following a labour unrest.
"We will reopen the factories on Friday on the government's assurance that it will provide us with security," Reaz Bin Mahmood, vice-president of BGMEA told The Daily Star.
The decision was taken after a team of garment factory owners met with Labour and Employment Minister Rajiuddin Ahmed Raju at the ministry Thursday, the BGMEA leader said.
On May 13, garment makers decided to close around 200 factories in Ashulia for an indefinite period due to continued labour unrest over minimum wage.
