Water transport strike withdrawn

Water transport workers withdrew their indefinite strike late last night following a fruitful discussion with the government. They took the decision more than 11 hours after enforcing it across the country to press home their 11-point demand, including an increase in their wages.

Bangladesh Water Transport Workers' Federation announced withdrawal of the strike at midnight, following a successful meeting at the Department of Labour, local media reported citing Akhterul Islam, Public Relations Officer of the Ministry.
