>Jordanian cops club striking Bangladeshi workers

>Police in Jordan yesterday charged baton on Bangladeshi workers out on strike from Sunday in protest at cutbacks in salaries and irregular payments by their garment-factory employer. (Full article)
The management of the al-Bunayyat-based MRAI Apparels also barred the protesting workers numbering around 400 from entering the factory on the third day of the strike, a worker identifying himself as Nizamuddin told The Daily Star over the telephone yesterday.
He said they had entered the factory in the first two days but refrained from work to protest deducting Jordanian Dollar (JD) 25 from their salaries in the name of meal, accommodation and medical costs which were supposed to be free of costs.
“They do not pay our overtime regularly either,” he said, adding that police charged baton on some of the workers on the third day.
Bangladesh Ambassador to Jordan Golam Mohammad confirmed the strike, but put the number of workers taking part in it at around 250.
