Barguna transport workers call off strike

Bus services returned to normal in Barguna district on Wednesday, with transport workers calling off their strike on Tuesday night.


The aggrieved transport workers called off their stir after the district administration assured to meet their demands, according to union leaders.


“We had a meeting with officials of the district administration on Tuesday night and they gave us an assurance to meet all our demands,” said Kislu, president of Barguna district Bus, Minibus and Coach Owners’ Association.


“At the same time, the district administration officials requested us to suspend the strike in view of public inconvenience. So, we’ve decided to withdraw the indefinite strike,” he added.


On Monday, the transport workers went on an indefinite strike in protest against extortion and assault of Barguna transport workers by leaders and activists of Barishal Rupatoli Bus Owners’ Association.
