Mocking the agreement signed between the big trade unions and industrialists for not shutting down industries for at least four years, the workers of Sungold Brewery Nepal based in Mukundapur of Nawalparasi district have halted the production by putting various demands from Saturday

.

All works in the factory have been halted from early this morning after the workers saw no sign of agreement with the factory management. The workers had been obstructing the export from the factory for the past three days.

The management side and workers are in a tug-of-war regarding the issue of bonus to be given to the workers.

The Brewery is producing Sun Gold, Nepal Ice and Real Gold brands of beer. At least 80 workers are associated with the company.

Laborer Ganga Subedi said that the efforts to begin dialogue to resolve the problem and reopen the factory are underway.
