Members of steering committee support higher minimum wages in Bangladesh

Before the meeting of the National Wage Board in Bangladesh, members of the steering committee sent a joint letter to the government in Bangladesh.

They emphasise the importance of living wages, respect for workers' rights and, above all, freedom of association and collective bargaining. The signatories call on the government to seek a significant increase in industry-wide minimum wages, taking into account trade union demands. The National Wage Board was convened to negotiate for the first time in over five years an increase in minimum wages in Bangladesh's textile industry.
