Tripartite council to help solve RMG's labour problems

Oct '16
Formation of a Tripartite Consultative Council (TCC) for addressing labour disputes faced by workers in the RMG sector was discussed at a roundtable organised by Bangladesh Institute of Labour Studies (BILS) and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES). Speakers suggested that workers and owners from the industry should have a clear understanding of labour laws.

It is necessary for the owners of companies in the RMG industry as well as the workers to understand and apply labour laws for effectively forming the TCC. The council will help solve labour problems related to wages, workplace safety, working hours and social security among others.

The roundtable called 'Formulation of Tripartite Consultative Council in RMG sector: Scope and Challenges, Role of Stakeholders' was organised to explore the possibilities of the council and getting suggestions from the stakeholders for addressing the challenges in its formation, said Bangladeshi media reports.

Bangladesh worker organisations' leaders believe that formation of TCC will not be enough to reduce labour problems in the apparel sector as such bodies can only provide suggestions and are not empowered to make decisions.

However, Mikail Shipar, labour secretary, was of the opinion that TCC should be formed for the improvement of the Bangladesh's RMG sector. He suggested BILS to propose a framework to the labour ministry to assist the government in analysing the issue. Shipar also thinks that the council should be linked to the National Tripartite Consultative Council. (KD)
