Rana Plaza Garment Workers' Union gets new committee

The Rana Plaza Garment Workers' Union (RPGWU), a sister organisation of Garment Workers' Trade Union Centre, on Friday selected its new 15-member executive committee for next two years during its meeting in Savar, outside the capital.

Victim workers who survived the Rana Plaza collapse, which also killed over 1,100 people on April 24, 2013, and the families of the deceased workers formed the RPGWU on May 17, 2013, to press home their demands including compensation, and punishment for the accused.

Emdadul Islam once again was selected as the president while Nasir Uddin Sohan as the secretary.
