Leaders of Sammilita Garment Sramik Federation on Wednesday at a protest rally in the capital called on the Tuba Group owners to pay the dues of the workers immediately.
The federation organised the rally in front of the National Press Club, where its president Nazma Akter said the Tuba owners should follow the labour law in closing its garment factories.
The owners must pay all the dues of the 1,600 workers as early as possible, Nazma said.
She also called on the government to take steps to compel the Tuba owners to pay the dues of the workers.
Otherwise, the federation would announce tougher movement to compel the owners to pay the dues of the workers, Nazma warned.
Garment labour leaders Badruddoza Nizam, Mohammad Touhidur Rahman, Ruhul Amin, Shamima Nasrin, Mamtaz Begum and Nasir Uddin spoke at the rally.
The rally was followed by a protest procession that paraded different city roads.
The Bangladesh Garment Manufactures and Exporters Association leaders paid three months’ wage of the Tuba Group workers after a 12-day hunger strike of the workers last month.
