Bangladesh apparel sector has 540 trade unions
Feb '17
The readymade garment industry of Bangladesh boasts of 540 registered trade unions, according to M Mujibul Haque Chunnu, the state minister of labour and employment. He also said that a worker welfare foundation fund has been formed by the government and close to Taka 190 crore has already been deposited in it, which will be spent for workers’ welfare.

The present government of the country is worker-friendly and it has simplified the process of registering trade unions, said a Bangladeshi media news agency quoting Chunnu. The minister added that forming trade unions was workers’ fundamental right.

While addressing the Jatiya Sangsad or the House of the Nation, Chunnu said that his ministry has adopted various measures to ensure that workers at factories and mill get their due remuneration. The minimum wages of workers of 38 industries have also been fixed based on the recommendations of the Minimum Wage Board.

The minimum wage of RMG workers has been increased from Taka 3,000 to Taka 5,300 from December 1, 2013, informed the minister. (KD)
