State-owned Manufacturing Industries Workers bill places in JS

SANGSAD BHABAN, Sept 10, 2018 (BSS) – The State-Owned Manufacturing Industries Workers (Conditions of Service) Bill, 2018 was placed today in the Jatiya Sangsad with a view to implement the recommendations placed by the National Wage and Productivity Commission (NWPC).

State Minister for Labour and Employment M Mujibul Haq Chunnu placed the bill in the House with Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair.

Placing the bill, the State Minister said, “The proposed act would help make the new wage structure recommended by the NWPC effective.”

Earlier, the government enacted the state-owned manufacturing industries workers (conditions of services) act, in 2012 for the workers working in the state-run industries. But the act is not sufficient to fulfill the wage structure demanded by the workers, he added.

So, the government has formed the National Wage and Productivity Commission in 2018, said the state minister, adding that the recommendations placed by the commission was approved by the government which need to be effective under the new act.

The state minister urged the House to send the bill to the parliamentary standing committee for providing report within seven days.
