Govt to form workers welfare body in RMG firms
Jul '10
Similar to committees existing in the Export Processing Zones (EPZs), government has decided to form Workers' Welfare Committee (WWC) in every export-based apparel industry in the country, to develop rights of apparel labourers and eradicate destruction in the sector, informed officials.

Ready made garment (RMG) exporters have also joined hands in support of the initiative, thereby, indicating a major shift of the industrialist's stand, to finish the recurring unrest in the export earning segment of the nation, added the officials.

For long, Ready Made Garment (RMG) leaders had been opposing introduction of trade formation of any sort in the apparel companies outside the EPZs, despite requests made for the same by the domestic rights group and foreign buyers.

The decision of forming WWC was decided during a meeting, which was conducted at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). The meeting was chaired by Principal Secretary to PMO, Mohammad Abdul Karim and was attended by major chamber leaders, ministry officials, and past and present Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) presidents.

The Labour and Employment Ministry in joint discussions with BGMEA and Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) will form the WWC in every apparel firm.
