Compensate Rana Plaza victims before April 24: Workers

B_BARTA-DHAKA- 20 April,  Readymade garment (RMG) workers here on Sunday demanded that the victims of Rana Plaza building collapse and their families be compensated by April 24 next, the first anniversary of the tragedy.

They came up with the demand at a human chain programme organised by Sommilito Garments Sramik Federation (SGSF) in front of the Jatiya Press Club in the capital.

SGSF president Nazma Akhter said many workers fall victims to different accidents in RMG factories each year due to negligence of the government and factory owners to ensure their safety.

“The workers are treated as commodities, not as human being. The owners knowingly kill workers to make more money,” she said.

Nazma said the country’s RMG industry would keep on facing hindrances until the workers’ rights are fulfilled and their promotions ensured.

RMG workers leader Nahidul Islam Nayan said confiscating the wealth of Rana Plaza owner is not enough but the government must punish those responsible for the building collapse.

He said compensation must be provided among the victims of Rana Plaza building collapse and their families under the ILO Convention, considering the losses of their future earnings and sufferings.

Around 200 RMG leaders and workers joined the human chain programme.
