The Bangladesh Government has made public the names of the six members who will be on the wage board tasked with revision of salaries for readymade garment workers.
 
The six-member board would be headed by former District Judge Amulya Kumar Roy, while Professor Kamaluddin Ahmed of Dhaka University would be the neutral member, Labour Minister Rajiuddin Ahmed Raju told the media.
 
The garment factory owners would be represented on the board by M Saifuddin, whereas AK Fazlul Haque Mintu would represent the workers, the Minister said.
 
The board also has two temporary members—BGMEA Director Arshad Jamal Dipu representing the garment employers and Sirajul Islam Rony on behalf of garment workers.
 
The Labour Minister said the board has been given six months time to submit its recommendations. He hoped that the board will address all relevant issues to the satisfaction of workers.
 
He said the readymade garment units located in Ashulia, Savar and Dhaka would be shifted to Munshiganj’s Gazaria, where a special garment factory zone would be built on 500 acres of land.
 
He added that the Ministry plans to work on seven projects related to housing of garment workers, which will include setting up of hospitals, schools and colleges, in addition to other facilities.
 
The apparel sector in Bangladesh employees about four million workers, four-fifths of whom are females.
 
The minimum pay for garment workers in Bangladesh was fixed at Tk 3,000, in July, 2010, and it has not been revised since then.
