Bangladesh’s garments sector has found calm and peace after more than a month and half of unrest over the new wage structure.
Today, no unrest was reported anywhere from Dhaka, Ashulia or Savar – the unrest-intensive regions, according to sources.
Instead of gathering anywhere, workers were seen entering factories before 8:00am to join daily work. All closed factories had reopened.
Additional police forces were seen outside most of the factories in order to avoid any untoward situation. Security was has been increased inside the factories as well.
Police were also announcing in loudspeakers, urging the workers to go back to work. “If you do not join work you will not be paid” many were heard saying.
