ILO in stinging critique of Bangladeshi government

Written by John Mowbray

GENEVA - The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has expressed in the strongest possible terms its frustration at the continued lack of progress being made by the Bangladeshi government in ensuring proper worker rights in its ready-made-garment (RMG) sector. The ILO Committee on Standards voiced particular concerns about the government's failure to ensure workers' rights under ILO Convention 87 which relates to freedom of association and the right to organise. It also raised questions with regards to why trade unions are completely banned in Bangladesh's textile export processing zones, in a report presented at the recent International Labour Conference in Geneva.
