Envoys urge Bangla govt to speed up trade union registration

Ambassadors of five countries have urged the Bangladesh government to increase the speed of trade union registration in the apparel sector and also lower the cases of rejection of applications.

These envoys from the US, Netherlands, UK and Canada led by EU delegation head Pierre Mayaudon met senior officials of commerce, labour and foreign ministries.

In the meeting, the labour ministry showed a progress report, which showed that 507 trade unions were registered, while 133 safety committees were set-up.

These diplomats showed their dissatisfaction over the slow pace of formation of participation committees and safety committees in the garment sector, during the meeting.

The meetings have been taking place since the formation of the Sustainability Compact, launched in July 2013, in response to the Rana Plaza building collapse that killed around 1,100 people, mostly apparel workers.

These envoys shared the opinion that the rate of union registrations was far lower than the numbers of units in the industry, while at the same time, the number of rejection of applications was high.

They expressed concern in the delay in implementing corrective action plans in the sector already inspected under a government-ILO joint initiative. (AR)
