The request was made to ensure the salaries and other benefits of workers

Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) has urged workers of all state-owned jute mills to continue their production to ensure their wages.

The jute mills corporation on Sunday sent a letter, signed by BJMC Secretary AKM Tareq, to its officials concerned, including regional heads and general managers, to take necessary measures in this regard.

“The BJMC has been urging all  jute mill workers to continue production in their respective factories,” according to the letter.

The letter was issued following a series of worker protests to press home their nine-point demand.

At a joint meeting on Sunday, the Jute Mills Workers League, and CBA and non-CBA Oikya Parishad, decided to observe 96-hour and 72-hour strikes, and four-hour and six-hour blockades in phases.

Earlier this week, workers of nine state-owned jute mills in Khulna and Jessore observed a 72-hour strike, which ended at 6am, Friday. The strike was observed by workers in several other districts as well.

Their demands include setting up a wage commission, immediate payment of due gratuities, and a provident fund.
