Minister: Laws do not allow punishing RMG owners

  • Published at 08:48 am September 14th, 2014

State Minister for Labour Mujibul Haque Chunnu has said the existing laws do not allow to take punitive actions against the readymade garment factory owners.

The junior minister made the statement when a delegation of "Tuba Workers Welfare Association" met him at his office on Sunday morning.

The delegation, led by Moshrefa Mishu, met the minister and submitted their demands.

They urged the government to take action in order to ensure the payment of the due wage and festival bonus to the workers of factories under Tuba Group before the upcoming Eid.

The minister also said the government will sit with the garment owners on September 21 to discuss the issue of paying dues of the workers.

Chunnu said the current labour law does not have the provisions to take actions against the owners and create pressure on them.

He, however, said the government is trying its best to keep pressure on owners and force them to pay the due wages.
