ILO to bring 127 more Bangla apparel units under BW programme

To ensure greater social compliance and workers rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) will expand the scope and bring 127 more garment manufacturing units under its Better Work (BW) programme by June 2017. ILO has targeted to bring a total of 225 factories by June next year and 500 by 2021, as against the current figure of 98 under BW.

The BW programme is sponsored by ILO as well as the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and debuted after the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, which killed hundreds of workers.

The aim of the scheme is to promote competitiveness in the worldwide apparel supply chain and also improve working conditions of workers.

The programme is currently being run in 1,300 factories in countries like Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Jordan, Haiti and Nicaragua, which together employ around 1.6 million workers.

Bangladesh media reported that the programme currently reaches out to 201,995 workers in the 98 registered factories. (AR)
