Workers of a garments factory staged demonstration blocking the capital’s Mohakhali-Gulshan road for nearly one hour on Monday morning demanding compensation due to relocation of their factory.
The Gulshan zone assistant commissioner of police, Mohammad Shahnewaj Khaled, told the news agency: ‘Workers of Mascot Group began their demonstration around 10:30am. It obstructed traffic on Mohakhali-Gulshan road.’
The garment authorities have been asked to pay the workers three months of salary and perquisites in an FBCCI-mediated negotiation as compensation for the relocation of factory, he said.
But the workers demanded more, the police official said.
The workers began the demonstration on Monday morning following a heated argument with the authorities.
‘But we have managed to calm them down and make them leave the street. The traffic became normal around 11:30am,’ Khaled said.
