Court starts trial on garment workers strikes

The law courts have taken up the case to decide on the validity of the strikes that the RMG workers observed last month. However, union leaders and factory owners are presenting contradicting views regarding the impact of the court's decision and the number of workers who were not allowed to rejoin.

Where employee's stated that, 358 workers who were picketing against the suspension of union leaders lost their jobs as they failed to resume their duties within the time, stipulated by the court. Also that, still there are around 140 union workers who were suspended and have still not been allowed to rejoin their duties, in anticipation of the court's decision as regards justifiability of the strike.

However, union representatives claimed that there are around 800 workers who are still facing suspension. They also averted that, in spite of the government's plea that the factory owners and workers should end the row, the companies have initiated legal action against workers and are not ready for any sort of discussions.

The government has directed the RMG units to withdraw all the complaints that they filed against the union leaders and also to permit the suspended employee's to resume back their duties.
