Bangladesh trade union registration goes online
Apr '15
The Bangladesh government, with the support of UN’s International Labour Organisation (ILO), has launched online registration system for trade unions and trade union federations, according to media reports in the country.
Workers wishing to register new unions are now being encouraged to apply on-line. Paper-based submissions will also still be accepted in order to maximise the ability of worker groups to make applications. 
Labour rights groups, international buyers and the UN have been stressing on trade union formation in Bangladesh since 2013 after the worst ever building collapse that killed more than 1,100 workers in Savar.
At the launch of online registration system, ILO country director for Bangladesh Srinivas Reddy, said, “The online system should bring more transparency and accountability in processing trade union registrations. Over time, it should evolve into a vital tool that will help enhance labour rights across all industrial sectors.”
The online trade union registration system is being developed to gradually include information on registered trade unions and trade union federations, complaints and actions taken in regard to unfair labour practices as well as educational and welfare activities for workers.  (SH)
