Unlike the workers, jute mill officers did not receive their arrears and continued their protests on Friday Dhaka Tribune

However, officials of the mills concerned are yet to get theirs

Workers of nine state-owned jute mills in Jessore and Khulna received their outstanding wages and Eid bonus on Friday.

However, officials of the mills concerned are yet to get theirs, reports UNB.

Workers of Crescent, Platinum, and Star Jute Mills withdrew their wages from ATM booths in Khalishpur in the afternoon.

On the other hand, officials of these mills were not paid their arrears. Kalam Mollik, general secretary of the Jute Mill Industrial Officers Association, said: "We didn't receive any salary this year. Although the Finance Ministry paid the workers' arrears, mill officials were not paid any wages."

Hundreds of officials demonstrated in front of Khulna zone office. In a press conference, they demanded payment of their dues before Saturday.

They said that the prime minister had ordered to allocate TK 232.9 crore for jute mill workers and officials, but only TK 169.14 crore was allocated.

Meanwhile, about 40% of the workers are yet to withdraw their money as ATM booths ran out of cash, prompting many workers to demonstrate in front of SIBL's Khulna Sadar branch.
