ILO welcomes Bangladesh decision to revisit minimum wages
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) country office in Bangladesh has welcomed the Bangladesh Government’s decision to revisit the minimum wages for readymade garment (RMG) workers through an agreement reached on January 13 by a special tripartite committee set to resolve the issue. It has promised its full support to the initiative.

“We acknowledge the genuine efforts of all parties, led by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, to work towards setting minimum wages at an appropriate level and to reach a consensus. Through this tripartite process of dialogue confidence is being built and we call upon all parties to help the industry resume its activity,” ILO country director for Bangladesh Tuomo Poutiainen said in a press release.

The ILO stands ready to accompany its tripartite constituents in Bangladesh and the RMG industry in reviewing the wage-setting system to ensure predictability for business and promoting sound industrial relations through social dialogue and collective bargaining, the press release said. (DS)
