RMG workers block road in Mirpur for arrears

The workers of a garment factory on Sunday morning blocked road near Sony Cinema Hall at Mirpur 1 in the capital demanding unpaid wages and allowances and protesting closure of factory without prior notice.

The agitated workers of Zara garment blocked the road at 9:00am to press home their demand, halting vehicular movement between Mirpur 1 to Mirpur 10 and Zoo Road, Dadon Fakir, officer-in-charge (OC) of Mirpur Model Police Station said.

The agitating workers alleged that a garment manufacturing company named Zara Garment did not pay them the due salaries of the last several months and now closed the factory down without any prior notice.

They said they will continue their protest until their demands are met.
