RMG sector hit by vandalism

According to two ministers, Bangladesh's readymade garment sector is enduring loss of billions of dollars owing to international vandalism conspiracy.

The ministers commented on the same, due to the fact that, since the past few years, many instances of vandalism and clashes by aggressive workers in the sector were noted.

Workers were mainly led to opt for such violent protests with demands for higher salaries, festival bonus, weekly offs and annual increment, which has compelled many of the garment factories to cease production.

Labour Minister Eng. Khandker Mosharraf Hossain, subsequent to his visit to Islam Garments at Kashimpur in Konabari Industrial Belt, said while talking to press, that a vested group is occupied in undermining the vital industry.

Mr Hossain said that, as the conspirators in the name of protest are wrongly using workers and thus, the worker need to be cautious about activities of these conspirators, who for the purpose, mainly target factories with fair labour practices.

Workers' unrest has forced around 25 factories to cease production during last week. Among these industries are five major units of DBL Group and Mandal Group, which are the country's leading conglomerates.

Shafiqul Islam, Managing Director of Islam Garment Eng divulged that, on February 28 hundreds of workers demanding higher wages and other monetary benefits, vandalized the apparel firms, resulting in a loss of Tk 150 million.

Shamsul Haque Tuku, State Minister for Home has announced a warning that vandalism will be strictly dealt with, and also ensured the garment exporters that they will be equipped with enhanced security and infrastructural safety.
