RMG workers stage demo for outstanding salary at CEPZStaff Correspondent . Chittagong
Several hundred workers of a readymade garment factory at Chittagong Export Processing Zone staged demonstration Thursday morning demanding payment of their outstanding salaries.
CEPZ sources said authorises of the ready made garment North Pool BD Limited, which remained closed for the past three months, were scheduled to pay outstanding salaries to the workers in the morning.
Ranjir Roy, a sub-inspector at the Bandar police station, said the workers staged demonstration in front of the factory, as the authorities failed to make the payment as per prior schedule.
Later, the workers left the spot, as the authorities pledged to make the payment on November 27 following police intervention, he said.
