RMG workers block highway for arrear, bonus

Traffic movement on Dhaka-Chittagong highway remained suspended for 40 minutes Sunday morning as workers of a garment factory put barricades in Siddhirganj of Narayanganj demanding arrears and Eid bonus.

Following the blockade, a three-kilometre jam was created on the both sides of the highway, causing immense sufferings to the homebound people ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, reports our correspondent from the spot.

The workers removed the barricades around 11:10am when police rushed to the spot and assured them of settling the issue after a negotiation with the garment authorities.
