Social compliance by 70% knitwear units pending

27
Apr '06
About seventy percent of the knitwear factories have not ensured social compliance, a survey conducted by Nari Uddug Kendra (NUK) revealed.

No action has been undertaken by 65 factories to preserve factory documents, 36 percent have taken no measures to maintain employment records while 88 percent have yet to comply with freedom of association standard.

A survey was conducted on 55 knitwear factories located in Narayanganj, Gazipur and Savar areas from July 2005 to February 2006.

Earlier, Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) handed over a list 100 factories to NUK for compliance development.

Work with 55 factories is going on to help ensure compliance so that they can satisfy their buyers, said Mashuda Khatun Shefali, Executive Director of NUK.

The NUK survey also found that 90 percent factories complied with standards regarding child labour, 46 percent with working hour rule, wages and benefits and overtime compensation while 36.36 percent with workplace environment standard.
