Water transport workers postpone work abstention: Monnujan Sufian
Water transport workers postponed work abstention, said State Minister for Labour and Employment Monnujan Sufian.
The state minister exchanged views at a meeting held at the conference room of the Directorate of Labour in the capital on Tuesday in a bid to resolve the ongoing unrest of the water transport sector.
The water transport workers across the country began plying all type of vessels from morning today.
Water transport workers started countrywide indefinite strike early Tuesday to press home their 11-point demand.
The workers under the banner of Bangladesh Water Transport Workers’ Federation declared the strike as a meeting with the Shipping Ministry held on Monday night went fruitless, said Shah Alam Bhuiyan, president of the federation.
Following the strike, the workers suspended plying off all types of passenger and goods-laden vessels from Sadarghat, Khulna and Monga ports from 12:01am
