Economic uplift 'impossible' depriving workers
FE Report
5/5/2006
 

          Economic development is not possible depriving workers because a majority of them are involved in ready-made garments (RMG) -- the 76 per cent export-earning sector of the country.
Bangladesh National Council (BNC) of Textile Garment and Leather Workers Vice Chairman and trade union (TU) leader Shahjahan Khan made the observation while speaking at the two-day national workshop on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) jointly sponsored by the Institute for Occupational Health, Safety and Environment (OHSEI) and the Textile Workers for Asian Regional Organisations (TWARO) at a city hotel Wednesday.
Organised by the BNC, the workshop was presided over by BNC leader and Bangladesh Home-workers Women Association (BHWA) General Secretary Dilruba Anguri while OHSEI Coordinator Chalida Srisahaburi spoke as the chief guest on the occasion.
Among others, BNC Chairman Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury, Vice Chairman Shahjahan Khan MP, BNC leader ZM Kamrul Anam, and TU leader and Coordinator of the workshop Badruddoza Nizam spoke in the two-day workshop.
In her speech, Chalida Srisahaburi said though the multinational factories are operated as per Code of Conduct most of their workers do not understand 'Code of Conduct'.
The workers have legal right to know about this. Without understanding the 'Code of Conduct' they are being deprived of their rights, she said.
The OHSEI representative said the Code of Conduct is made in the interest of workers, owners and consumers. It is therefore very important for establishment of their rights, she added.
Thirty (30) workers' leaders of different multinational companies of the country took part in the two-day workshop.
