Strike to reclaim union office

Chittagong, Bangladesh
The Bangladesh Road Transport Labour Federation announced a two day transport strike next week in Chittagong. The strike has been called in support of 15 demands including stopping the extortion and ‘requisition business’ of the police, building a new bus terminal, and stopping the activities of unregistered bus owners and labour organisations.
The key demand is that the office of the union at Fatikchhari be returned to them after it was seized by followers of the governing party in January 2009.
