Workers in knitwear sector to get ID cards

Knitwear Manufacturers in Bangladesh have plans to distribute identity cards to workers for keeping a record of their personal information.

This was disclosed by Mr Fazlul Hoque, President of Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) on August 7, at a seminar held on 'Labor-Owner Relations for Ensuring a Sustainable Future of Garment Sector' in Dhaka.

BKMEA President further pointed out that, “The database will help us get access to personal information of the workers. We have already placed the idea, which has immediately been accepted by the government. Now we are making a formal proposal to place it before the government soon.”

Mr Syed Manzur Elahi, former adviser to the caretaker Government and Chairman of Apex group also expressed concern over lack of skilled managers which is quintessential for a smooth running of factories. While making an observation, he said that since Bangladesh is falling short of capable managers, many foreign nationals have come to occupy managerial positions in the sector, which is really sad as it reflects inability on part of the country to produce efficient managers.

Some others also threw light on the issue of developing mutual cooperation and understanding between factory owners and workers in order to establish a good relationship, that will in the long run, help for betterment of the sector.
