Garments Sramik-o-Shilpa Rokka Jatiya Moncha has put an eight-point demand, which includes rationing essentials at 50 percent of the prices; constructing high-storied buildings for workers' lodgings in Savar, Chittagong, Gazipur and Dhaka as a mutual initiative between the BGMEA and the Government; dearness allowance equal to 50 percent of the basic pay; providing transport facilities or raising the pay by Tk 500; medical facilities; formation of workers' welfare fund; right to form trade unions; and skill up-gradation through training.

The Moncha Coordinator, Kutubuddin Ahmad said that there are around two million garment workers across the country who sustain on meagre salaries of Tk 3,000 per month.

While raising a demand for allocation of the required budget for the garment workers, he called upon the owners of garment units to follow the compliances and meet the ILO norms to help evolve a labour-friendly industry.
