Leaders of BGMEA and labour rights organizations have expressed their firm willingness to continue collaboration and cooperation to maintain harmonious industrial relations for the greater interests of the RMG sector.
They said years of hard work and dedication of both entrepreneurs and workers have brought the RMG industry of Bangladesh to a glorious position in the world.
Maintaining sound relations between the employers and workers through effective engagement and discussions will help the apparel sector to carry forward its achievements and keep the growth momentum going, they opined.
The observations came from a meeting held between the BGMEA leadership and labour leaders at BGMEA office in Uttara on Monday.
In the meeting BGMEA President Faruque Hassan said while the apparel sector is yet to fully recover from the impacts of the Covid-19, the increase in prices of yarn, cotton, dyes, chemicals and other raw materials has pushed the production cost up.
“But prices have not increased proportionately. Moreover, recent surge in Covid-19 infection in the world including some European countries has raised concerns.”
