Garment factories to make payments before Eid - Minister

Nov '09
In order to ward off any kind of untoward incident before the Eid-ul-Azha, owners of garment industries of the country, guaranteed industry workers to pay full salary for the month of October and half salary for November, said Mr. Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Labour and Employment Minister.

If possible, the owners will also pay bonus to their workers before the festival, which will be observed on November 28. Legal actions would be taken against the garment owners, if they fail to pay the assured wages on time, said the minister.

It might be difficult for around 860 small and medium garment factories to do the payments as they witnessed very few orders from international buyers on account of economic slowdown, said an expert of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).

However, these industries will make payments before Eid by taking loans from banks as BGMEA has advised garment enterprises to pay salary, bonus and overtime to the workers before the festival, at any cost.

The issue of payment had earlier been discussed by a crisis-management committee constituted with representatives of BGMEA, BKMEA (Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association) and workers and officials of the home and labour ministries.
