Tops & Bottoms garments is situated at Tongi, Gazipur. The workers came to Dhaka in groups, 5 times already. For collecting their due payments. They visited BGMEA building again on last Monday upon owners’ promise. But, as usual they left without receiving anything. Now the owners have ensured them again to come on Friday.
Workers got to know that, owners temporarily closed the garments after the Ramadan Vacation. But all of them were due for 3 months’ payment of June-July-August and Eid-ul-Azha bonus. Upon the protests of the workers, the owners agreed to pay only to the workers who had been working for or over a year in their garments. Helpless workers agreed. But, even after changing the payments dates for 5 times, these poor workers are losing all hope.
They started rallying again from Monday morning. None came with payment. Angry mob started shouting. Later Tejgaon police came to calm them down. Police helped them to get on Tongi buses.
Again, most of these workers travel in over crowed pick-up vans with great risk. The Police SI Aminul requested the workers to take the bus instead. But the request backfired at him as the workers reasoned, they already enough money traveling 5 times.
SI Aminul reported, nothing bad or unpleasant event occurred at the scene. It was just very hard to calm down and handle a big group of garments-workers. They were spun on false promises for far too long.
