SKOP calls for proper amendments to labour law

UNB

Sramik Karmachari Oikya Parishad (SKOP) leaders yesterday demanded for a proper amendment to the labour law protecting rights of the workers, reports UNB. In a press briefing at the National Press Club, they urged the government to introduce a democratic labour law changing the ‘undemocratic parts’ of the law to ensure justice for the country’s labourers. Naimul Ahsan Jewel, joint coordinator of SKOP said, the proposed amendments would hamper the workers’ trade union rights.

He said, according to the draft of the amendment, the factories would be allowed to form trade unions with the representation of 20 per cent of workers instead of 30 per cent in the present law. Keeping section 23, 27, 26 and 180 in the labour law it would be difficult to introduce trade unions in the mills and factories as the owners of the big factories are more powerful and don't follow legal rules, he said.
