RMG workers for payment before 20th Ramadan
Garment factory owners should pay the apparel workers salary and Eid allowance before the 20th Ramadan to avoid any unrest in the sector, demanded different garment workers' associations.
At separate programmes in the capital, the leaders of the organisations made the demand so that the workers can spend Eid vacation with their families, said separate press releases yesterday.
Besides, Bangladesh Garment Workers Unity Council submitted a memorandum to the chairman of Minimum Wages Board demanding, among others, reformation of the wage board for garment workers.
Meanwhile, a team from Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association met with the deputy governor of Bangladesh Bank for the assurance of package money for the association before Eid-ul-Fitr.
