Workers body demands higher compensation
Jan '11
A workers' organization has appealed for a better compensation in case a worker employed in an apparel factory dies in an accident. The organization has demanded Tk 500,000 as compensation and has also asked for a favorable working environment for the workers. The demand was forwarded at a press conference by the Bangladesh National Council (BNC) constituted by the textile, apparel as well as leather workers.

The workers' leaders also asked for divisional enquiry into the outbreak of fire at the Ha-Meem Group factory at Ashulia and for appointing labor representatives in the enquiry committee constituted by the government of Bangladesh. They further demanded a correct list of the workers who died and got injured in the mishap. Around 31 workers were reported to have been killed in the fire incident.

The General Secretary of BNC revealed that if effective measures are taken then over three million jobs can be generated from the biggest export earning sector of the country which is the apparel industry. An effort towards creating an atmosphere of trust between the government of the country as well as workers is required. They further added that around 3.5 million workers were employed in the RMG units and it had received 30 percent new orders over a period of past three months.
