Govt intends to rescue private jute mill workers
05
Jan '11
The government, during a meeting held recently between the State Minister for Labour and Employment Monnujan Sufian and the workers' leaders from various privately owned jute mills, came up with a decision to arrange a tripartite meeting with the private jute millers and their workers.

The meeting would be organized to address the issue of giving out festival allowances to the workers of these private jute mills. The government intends to conduct this meeting within this month itself.

This consideration from the side of the government resulted from the assertions of the workers' representatives that, they have been surviving under miserable conditions as the remunerations that they draw for their work every month are too less to manage their survival.

Initially, the workers' leaders intended to observe a strike on January 4, but then relying on the commitment made by the State Minister, they dropped the idea for the time being. This action had been planned under the aegis of the 'Bangladesh Private Jute Mills, Yarn (Twine) CBA and non-CBA Sramik League Coordination Council'.
