Bangladesh garment bodies plea for suspension of strike
May '13
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) have jointly urged the country’s opposition parties to lift the 36-hour strike call given by them, especially for garment manufacturing units.
In a joint statement, BGMEA and BKMEA representatives said the strike will affect in the rescue and medical assistance being conducted after the collapse of Savar’s Rana Plaza, which housed 5 garment units.
The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) had given a 36-hour nation-wide strike beginning on the morning of May 8, 2013. 
Another call for a day-long strike on May 12, 2013, has been given by Hifazat-e-Islam.
The shutdown of garment manufacturing units will lead to lesser productivity in the sector, the statement said. 
A visit of Chinese delegation is also planned during the strike period, which might also be affected, it added.
