Labour and Workers Rights

rightsBangladesh, despite some progress in the last two decades, is still facing multiple challenges of enactments, enforcements, and violations of workers’ rights. In Bangladesh, achieving the goals of economic growth, social development and poverty reduction depend much on developments in the labour market and success in expanding decent employment opportunities through both waged and self-employment for the growing labour force. The UO particularly focuses on two areas – right to work and right to work in decent conditions. The UO works on all components of industrial relations, specifically focuses on labour, wage structure, employee-employer relations etc. in order to develop a more sustainable growth path for the industry and improves the working conditions of the labour workforce.
