The Azim Group has announced to cease the operations of its four units located at the Kalurghat industrial zone in Chittagong for an indefinite time after the workers resorted to demonstration over the issue of raising the piece rate for manufacturing sweaters.

The Group management is apprehending large-scale labor strife over the issue.

Recently, around 3,500 workers, employed in two units of Global Specialized Garments Limited as well as two different units of Savar Sweater Limited, which are under the Azim Group, staged a demonstration. These units are located in the GKL Sweater Complex.
