Garment factory managers taken to task by Govt
Feb '08
Persistent labor unrest invading the garment factories, has forced Bangladesh Government to organize special training sessions on workers rights for managers.

This move was taken on account of the fact that garment factory managers failed to handle critical situations at times of labor unrest posing a threat to the country's export earnings.

Agitation among employees can be justified on grounds of a survey conducted recently. The study shows that a minimum of 145 garment manufacturers have been violating the law by not implementing the Tk1662 Minimum Wage Act. There are still others that have had a bad record for not paying salaries to their workers on a regular basis.

Three training sessions have already been held with a group of 30 managers and the Government aims to extend this program to involve at least 2-3 middle managers from more than 4000 factories across the countries.

It is strongly believed that consultation will help improve the overall managerial capacity as well as reduce the chances of disputes with workers.

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) also gave its full support to the cause stating that it was one of the means available to ensure a smooth and steady interaction between the management and the employees.
