Shipping Minister’s intervention sought to call off Lighterage strike
The operations of sixteen jetties at Karnaphuli River remained suspended as a group of lighter vessel workers went on a wildcat strike from Saturday morning. Mahbubul Alam, president of the apex trade body of the port city, made the plea to the Shipping Minister Shahjahan Khan through a letter which was sent to him on Sunday. The CCCI President in his letter said: “A group of workers under the banner of Bangladesh Lighterage Workers’ Union went for the wildcat strike without any prior notice from Saturday morning with a demand of implementing the newly announced wage structures.” As many as 60 lighter vessels laden with different types of goods like raw materials and fertilisers are lying idle at Karnaphuli River because of the wildcat strike. Therefore, transportation of goods from Chittagong to all over the country is being disrupted. The unloading operations from mother vessels anchored at the outer anchorage of Chittagong Port will be at stake if the strike continues further.
