May '10
A month-long protest has been declared by thousands of workers and employees of 17 private, jute, yarn and textile mills in the southwestern region of Bangladesh to press home their 10-point demand including a wage commission.

In a rally held for the second time recently in Khulna city, more than 30,000 workers and employees of the mills in Khulna, Satkhira, Jessore, Kushtia, Magura and Faridpur districts announced this movement.

The workers have demanded the payment of gratuity and service benefits, festival bonus and all arrears, formulation of a new democratic labour law, rationing system and group insurance, medical allowances and supply of cheap priced electricity to labour colonies.

The first rally was spear-headed by the Jute and Textile Mills Workers' Action Coordination Committee, on May 1 and members of the same committee have warned the government of more severe action if their demands are not fulfilled till May 25.

A memorandum was submitted to the Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, on May 9, seeking her intervention into the matter, informed Wahid Murad, a leader of the committee.

Another set of memorandum would also be submitted to the Deputy Commissioners of the respective districts, Commissioner of Khulna Metropolitan Police, and the Divisional Commissioner.
