Sylhet transport workers call off strike

SYLHET: Bus services returned to normal in Sylhet on Wednesday, with transport workers calling off their strike on Tuesday night, reports UNB.

 The aggrieved transport workers called off their stir after the district administration assured them to meet their five-point demand, according to union leaders.

“We had a meeting with officials of the district administration around 8pm and they gave us an assurance to meet all our demands, said Ali Akbar Rajan, joint general secretary of the district bus, mini bus, coach, and microbus workers’ union.

 At the same time, the district administration officials requested us to suspend the strike in view of the SSC examination. So, we’ve decided to withdraw the indefinite strike, he added.
