Common Grievances of Workers in Textile Sector
« on: October 19, 2011, 11:24:35 AM »
To find worker’s grievances at textile industries in Bangladesh, I did a survey with a specific questionnaire. On the basis of survey I have found that each and every worker has their own grievances. Some has many grievances and some has few grievances. I have got many grievances from their own point of view. There are some common grievances of all the workers. Some of their common grievances are -
•   Inadequate wages
•   Absence of trade union
•   Lack of collective bargaining
•   Delay in payment
•   Lack of medical benefits
•   Lack of transportation & accommodation facilities
•   Safety practice
•   Increments
•   Compensation
•   Promotion
•   Disciplinary action
•   Fines
•   Condition of Work
•   Breach of international working hour
•   Inadequate vacation

That's why, we often hear about the industrial dispute or strike. Our labor cost is still less now as compare to other countries of the World and it is now becoming difficult for the workers to survive in the Dhaka city due to daily high expenses. Industrial owners must need to be more responsible in that sense and at least they should meet the legal demands of the industrial workers.

We know we have lots of shortcomings but after all of that we should be positive and try to improve our overall political & social environment.

I think it is a very good type of survey to make us aware of our drawbacks and shortcomings.our people are not educated,they don't know the labour laws or their right.in this regards,our government or our industrialist are not the only responsible,the people who are evaluating our work, they are also responsible.we need to be proper educated and raise our voice for our rights, then everyone will evaluate us.
