MK Fashions Limited, Uttara, was brought to a sudden halt by its owner on 19 February 2013 due to workers’ unrest for low wage.
Weeks earlier, he sewing section was promised a raise in wage of at least BDT 500. However, the management failed to keep its word. Workers demanded that their basic wage be raised to BDT 4500-5200.
Workers’ revolt caused uproar within the factory and the management allowed police and goons to tackle the angry mob. The workers were driven out and the factory is closed till date.
National Garments Workers’ Federation came to look into the dilemma to resolve it. No press coverage had been made on the area.
MK Fashions Ltd remains closed till date.
