Wages, bonus paid in all factories: BGMEA

President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association Md Siddiqur Rahman on Saturday has claimed that all the payments of salaries and bonus of the workers have already been completed.

Siddiqur made his claim at a media briefing at the BGMEA headquarters in Dhaka immediately just before the protest of the workers of Monde Apparels Ltd , who blocked a road in Kalyanpur for one and a half hours early Saturday.

“All the garment factories paid salaries and bonuses to their workers before Eid,” Siddiqur Rahman claimed at the briefing.

Shortly after that workers of Monde Apparels Ltd created blockade on the Kalyanpur road for one and a half hours, in demand of three months of back pay and bonuses.

Around 150 workers have taken positions under the Kalyanpur overhead footbridge, creating obstruction for traffic on both sides of the road.

Workers called off the protests around 3pm after police promised to confront the owners over the matter.

According to the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association or BGMEA, Monde Apparels is owned by Nur-E-Alam Siddiqi.
