Vessel owners withdraw strike



The lighterage vessel owners association has called off its strike after the shipping minister gave an assurance that the demands will be met.

The announcement was made after vessel owners held a meeting with Shahjahan Khan at the Shipping Ministry this afternoon.

The ship owners had called the strike to protest a government order setting the minimum wage for vessel workers at 10,000 Taka. Importers of foreign goods were facing heavy losses because goods could not be off-loaded from ships in the outer anchorage.

The port authority, businessmen, and the Cargo Vessel Owners Association had held several meetings earlier to resolve the issue.
