Hotel workers want holiday on May DayStaff Correspondent . Sylhet
Hotel Workers’ Union leaders on Saturday in Sylhet demanded immediate steps to ensure implementation of the May Day’s holiday and minimum wages stipulated by the government for them.
They made the demands in a press conference at the District Press Club in the city in the afternoon.
Sylhet District Hotel Workers’ Union president Abul Kalam Azad read out a paper on the demands.
He said the hotel workers were not getting a minimal benefit of the existing Labour Law in the country because of continuous sluggishness of hotel owners.
‘They are forcing us to work up to 18 hours a day defying the labour act. But, we do not get the least advantage for the inhuman labour,’ the union leader said.
Sylhet district trade union association president Nurul Huda Saleh and its joint secretary Rupak Das, district hotel workers’ union vice-president Mir Jasim Uddin, general secretary Sadeq Miah, the union’s city unit president Ariful Islam and secretary Safar Ali, among others, were present at the press conference.
