Readymade garment (RMG) sector of Bangladesh has now entered a phase where disputes between employers and workers is creating a major hurdle in the way of growth of the industry and unless this issue is resolved, the situation is likely to remain grim.

A meeting on 'Law and order situation in RMG sector in Chittagong' was held on August 21, at the conference room of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).

While exchanging views on concerning issues, it was pointed out that strong motivational role of the owners, sense of belonging among workers, timely intervention of management in case of agitation, proper evaluation of the situation and maintaining a good relationship between the owners and the workers would surely bring about a positive change and create conducive atmosphere in the RMG sector of the country.

The meeting witnessed the presence of BGMEA leaders, garment owners, top officials of the Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI), Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) and Rapid Action Battalion (Rab). Besides, MA Salam, the first Vice-President of BGMEA chaired and moderated the conference.

The main objective for convening this meeting was to discuss the present law and order situation in Dhaka and Chittagong garment units which recently experienced a few unpleasant incidents, unrest and agitation between workers and factory owners. Finding a way to prevent these from happening again in the future was another crucial issue that was taken up for consideration.

Some of those present at the meeting believed that a violent demonstration was likely to recur over timely payment of salaries, bonuses and other dues during Ramadan.

However, Mr Akbar Ali, CMP Commissioner, who was present at the meeting as the special guest, assured factory owners that activities of the troublemakers in the garment industry would be closely supervised and in case of any turmoil, timely action would be taken against them.
