RMG workers demand salary and bonus before 20th Ramadan

Dhaka: Leaders of Bangladesh Garments Workers Unity Council (BGWUC) on Saturday demanded the RMG factory owners pay their workers’ wages and festival bonus before the 20th Ramadan.

They came up with the demand at a human chain programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club.

Leaders of the BGWUC, the apex body of different registered garment workers’ federations, also urged the Prime Minister to take necessary steps so that they can get their wages and the bonus in time.

The protesters said it seems the RMG factory owners remain under so much stress during Ramadan that they hardly get time to pay their workers’ wages and bonus.

‘Workers can do their shopping smoothly and return home ahead of eid with joy if they’re paid their wages and bonus before then 20th Ramadan,’ said BGWUC president Mahatab Uddin Shahid.

Otherwise, he warned, the RMG workers will not be allowed to celebrate the eid smoothly. ‘The workers’ will encircle the factory owners’ houses, if it is necessary.’

Bangladesh Garments Workers Federation president Towhidur Rahman, Bangladesh Revolutionary Garments Workers Federation president Salauddin Swapan, National Workers Federation president Amirul Haq Amin, among others, spoke at the human chain.
