RMG workers demand minimum wage of Taka 8000

Terming the new Labour Law a ‘weapon’ to persecute the workers, speakers at a roundtable discussion on Wednesday said the government formulated the law only to serve interests of the owners.
“The government formulated the anti-worker law as per the dictation of the garment owners even after two big tragedies of Rana Plaza collapse and Tazreen Fashions fire,” said Shahidullah Chowdhury, president of Bangladesh Trade Union Centre.
Garment Sramik Trade Union Kendra (GSTUK) organised the programme at Pragati conference room in the capital. Speaking on the occasion, eminent economist Prof Anu Mohammad said garment workers must be provided Tk 8,000 as minimum wage considering the present situation.   Labour leaders Quazi Ruhul Amin and Taslima Akhter Lima, among others, addressed the programme with GSTUK president Montu Gosh in the chair. – UNB
