BB officers halt movement


Officers of Bangladesh Bank (BB) on Monday halted their token strike and other protest programmes until January 24.

 

Leaders of the Bangladesh Bank Officers Welfare Association (BBOWA) said they postponed their protest programmes at the request of the BB governor Dr. Atiur Rahman.

 

They said the governor assured them of considering their demands in the central bank's next governing body's meeting scheduled for January 24.

 

President of the BBOWA, Siddikur Rahman Mollah, said they made the decision upon the governor’s assurance.   

 

The officers of the central bank have been observing a token two-hour strike daily for last few days for various demands including removal of anomalies in the government-announced pay scale.

 

They said that in the new pay-scale, the starting position of the central bank's officers has been downgraded to the 9th from the previous 8th grade.

 

Secondly, the central bank's officers have been put in the same position along with officers of the other public banks, a decision they are not willing to accept.

 

Separately, BB issued an order banning all kinds of strikes and agitation programmes until further notice, according to UNB. - Idrak
