The minimum wage structure in the cotton textile sector will be announced within the next two weeks, said the Textile Mills Association (BTMA).
This information was informed in a circular signed by the organization’s Additional Secretary General Mansoor Ahmed on Friday.
It has been said that there has been chaos in the BTMA member factories located in the industrial areas around Dhaka for quite some time. In this situation, the government has formed a board to determine the wage structure of the cotton textile sector.
The notification informed that the wage structure will be announced soon and implemented. Besides, the related bills along with dues will be paid from the effective date of the new structure.
Therefore, the organization has called upon the workers not to create chaos.
