Police foil garment workers’ demo in Savar

Police on Monday dispersed a demonstration of garments workers over the new wage structure in Savar.

Many workers of two factories of Standard Group were agitating in Hemayetpur Tannery Road.

Workers had urged the owners to eliminate the discriminations in the new wage board.

“But instead, they unleashed police on us yesterday. We were beaten. So today, we are agitating,” several agitating workers said.

One other apparel unit in Ashulia remained shut.
