Bangladesh to address inconsistency in wage structure
The Bangladesh Government has decided to resolve inconsistencies in the newly-announced wage structure for readymade garment workers within a month by forming a committee comprising five government officials and five labour leaders, according to commerce minister Tipu Munshi, who met garment industry owners and trade union leaders early this week.

The meeting was convened amid workers protests for many days, according to Bangladeshi media reports.

The government issued an amended gazette notification on November 29, four days after the final gazette notification on the new wage structure, raising confusion among the workers about their pay hike.

They alleged their basic wages in some grades in the new structure had been decreased from what they were.

As per the gazette notification, the monthly minimum wage for garment workers has been raised to Tk 8,000 from Tk 5,300.

Munshi said workers would be paid proportionately in their January salary if we found inconsistency in the salary structure. (DS)
