Nov '13
The new wage structure of  Tk 5,300 minimum monthly salary for Bangladesh ready-made garment (RMG) workers, is set to be effective from December 1, 2013, announced Labor Minister Rajiuddin Ahmed Raju, a day after the RMG owners finally agreed to pay the wage recommended by board.
 
Following a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Gono Bhaban, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) agreed to pay salaries to the RMG workers as per the recommendations of the Wage Board.
 
Mr. Ahmed Raju said that after the Prime Minister’s intervention, the RMG factory owners have agreed to the Wage Board’s proposal which would come into effect from December 1, 2013.
 
The Labor Minister said that in addition to the hike in the wage for entry level RMG workers, the new wage structure also includes a 5 percent yearly increment on every worker’s basic salary.
 
The new minimum wage for entry level workers in the RMG factories has been hiked by 76.66 percent from the existing wage of Tk 3,000, he added.
 
While announcing the new pay scale for RMG workers, Mr. Ahmed Raju urged the labor leaders to protect the garment sector as it employs nearly 4.2 million workers in the country.
 
The new wage for RMG workers includes Tk 3,000 as basic pay, Tk 1,280 for rent allowance, Tk 320 medical allowance, Tk 200 transport allowance and Tk 500 food subsidy.
 
The Government hopes that the move would end the labor strife that is unsettling the country’s chief export earning sector, the Labor Minister added.
