Minister directs RMG owners to allow TU in factories
Aug '10
Labour and Employment Minister, Khandker Mosharraf Hossain in line with the long raised demand by workers, recently directed the garment mill owners to permit formation of trade unions (TU) in their factories.

The Minister, while speaking at a workshop held in the city by the Ministry and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) remarked that, with the lack of trade union, it is difficult to generate an amiable atmosphere for a dialogue between the workers and the factory owners.

Amongst the ones' who participated in this workshop were government representatives, RMG owners and workers. Speaking further, the Minister even added that, workers' representatives could play a significant role so as to prevent any sort of disturbances in the industry.

While mentioning that the country's repute had suffered on account of recent incidences of labour strife, Minister also emphasized on the need to reinstate order in the garment industry. He further added that efforts should be made to resolve the workers issues and a tripartite committee is already active on this front.

Labour organisations since long were calling for government support to aid formation of trade unions in the industry. Government will start technical training centres in all the regions so as to churn out skilled workers, averred the Minister. More so, five marine academies are likely to be set up, through which around 100,000 workers would be given skill training.
