Worries over harvest as tea workers strike over low wages


Vijay Hazra, organising secretary of the Bangladesh Tea Workers Union, said, "The workers are helpless. The Tea Workers Union relaxed their programme for two days for the weekend holiday and the National Mourning Day. Tea leaves were found to have grown bigger in a few tea gardens around Srimangal Sadar on Monday with sprouting new buds. According to Bangladesh Tea Workers Union and Bangladesh Tea Parliament Act, the plantation owner will ensure fair wages, bonuses, accommodation, education, medical treatment, ration, and drinking water to the workers. A meeting is held between the Bangladesh Tea Workers Union and the Bangladeshi Tea Parliament every two years to discuss the wages.
