ILO hosts training for workplace cooperation in Dhaka
Apr '17
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) with the support of Sweden and Denmark is hosting a training programme in Dhaka on improving workplace cooperation and handling grievances. The training is for 30 master trainers comprising officials of the Department of Labour and Industrial Relations Institutes. The five-day programme will conclude on April 7.

The initial training focuses on workplace cooperation, with future sessions set to cover collective bargaining and grievance procedures. Once trained, these master trainers will play a crucial role to support the development of workplace cooperation plans in 34 non-unionised factories out of a group of 54 pilot factories provided by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association and Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association. These plans will provide a basis for the work of the participation committees in these factories.

The training programme has been developed with the support of the ILO's International Training Centre (ITC). It is the first of a series to be held by the ILO's Improving Social Dialogue and Harmonious Industrial Relations in the Bangladesh RMG sector project. Launched in December 2016 in collaboration with Government of Bangladesh, the initiative aims to develop dialogue mechanisms between employers and workers as a means of preventing and constructively resolving disputes.

"This training marks an important first step in our efforts to create better social dialogue in Bangladesh.  Enhancing the capacity of the Department of Labour and Industrial Relations Institutes will help build a more mature industrial relations environment for Bangladesh that will benefit employers and workers alike," said Gagan Rajbhandari, deputy director, ILO Bangladesh.
