Truckers Paralyze Dhaka Streets and Threaten Broader Job Action

Bangladeshi Truckers Walkout In Dhaka and Threaten All Out Strike October 31st 2018-10-30

Dear Valued Customer,

The streets of Dhaka have been paralyzed earlier this month and again this week as truckers walked off of the job to protest new governmental norms that impact on them.
 
Truckers are being forced to obtain educational certificates and agree to take on higher liability  in order to maintain their operating licenses.
 
Other changes imposed by the Government of Bangladesh have raised the ire of transport providers both within Dhaka and in other regions as well.
 
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association reports that they are suffering and that the impact of the withdrawal of service by truckers will become even more severe if the job action continues or escalates.
 
Trucking groups have given the authorities until October 31, 2018 to respond to their demand and threaten an all-out strike that will cause serious harm to Bangladeshi exporters.
 
Read more about the issue in an article from the Dhaka Tribune.
