Khulna jute mills’ workers block road, rail routes

 WT24 Desk

State-run jute mills’ workers of Khulna blockaded the road and railway in the district this morning to press for their five-point demand. The blockade has been enforced alongside a prevailing strike, that they began since April 4, reports Bangla daily Prothom Alo.

They blockaded Khulna-Jessore highway in the morning. The blockade has also been enforced on the Khulna-Jessore rail route causing distress to numerous passengers.

The five-point demand includes payment of dues of last eight weeks and dearness allowance. A work stoppage since April 4 (sparing the weekly holiday Friday) has caused a production deficit of nearly a thousand metric tonnes which has a market value of Tk 8 crore.
