The welfare of workers has always been the paramount issue area for BKMEA. In fact, its leadership is working relentlessly in a wide range of areas in order to expand the safety net for knitwear workers. Recently, one of the manifestations was through the signing of MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) between BKMEA & Jibon Bima Corporation (JBC).

It was a historic success which was achieved following a series of meetings between the two bodies in an effort to reach a settlement point. BKMEA President AKM Salim Osman and JBC Deputy General Manager Md. Abul Bashar signed the MoU on behalf of their respective sides. As per the agreement, all the deceased family members of knitwear workers will get TK 2 lac in place of existing TK 1 lac.

BKMEA President AKM Salim Osman reiterated his association’s resolute commitment to the welfare of workers. He opined that it would be injustice to ignore the well-being of thousands of workers who have been serving the sector with utmost sincerity eventually to promote Bangladesh as the 2nd largest knitwear exporter in the world. He hoped that any activities designed to address the welfare of workers would contribute to higher level of motivation and productivity.

Thanking BKMEA President, State Minister for Labor and Employment Begum Munnujan Sufian also underscored the need for preventive activities in order to minimize any form of casualty in the RMG sector. Here she laid the emphasis on responsible relationship between factory owners and workers. She hailed BKMEA for coming up with help for the deceased workers of Smart Fashion who died due to the recent fire accident.

Labor and Employment Secretary Mikail Shipar also shared his ministry’s firm commitment to the well-being of workers. Echoing the President’s view, he added that improved industrial relations between workers and employers could bring about a tangible change in the sector. JBC Managing Director Parikshit Datta Choudhury also spoke at the program and thanked BKMEA leadership for their worker-friendly activities.

At the end, BKMEA President handed over a cheque of Taka 7 lacto the state minister. Among others, BKMEA 1st Vice President Mohammad Hatem, 3rd Vice President Mahiuddin Faruqui, Vice President (Finance) Shameem Ahmed, members of BKMEA Board of Direct, representatives from different media, families of deceased knitwear workers were also present at the program.
