By covering important issues in an interesting and informative manner it will boost understanding of basic labour issues to the benefit of workers and employers alike.”

The main target audience of these radio talk discussion programmes are workers, supervisors and factory-level managers. This radio show will mainly focus on export-orientated sectors such as ready-made garments, shrimp processing, shoes and leather. However the majority of the issues covered are equally relevant to workers in all sectors.

We plan to feature a variety of speakers including experts on labour rights as well as union leaders and other special guests who will really help listeners understand workplace issues that are important to them.”
The host of ‘My Labour, My Rights’ will be RJ Sakib.  Each week he will be joined by an expert guest to discuss the topic of the week. The audience will also be invited to call in with their questions on the subject so that they can be discussed on air. In order to further appeal to the target audience the shows will also feature songs performed by workers as well as a weekly ‘Know your labour rights’ competition to win various prizes.
