Putting an end to the unrest in the garment industry

Due to lack of understanding and cooperation between the local lawmakers, administrators and garment owners, it has become quite tough for the government backed crisis management committees to control the violence in the garment community. The committee has also shown some mismanagement in their part, they are supposed to summon a meeting every month to discuss the management issues of the crisis, which is however only seen when there is a crisis taking place. This is a reason for which the labor and employment ministry formed its own central crisis management committee and five other committees based on five different zones back in 2010, for easier management of specific sector problems.

The central crisis management is leaded by the state minister for labor and Employment Munnojan Sufian, where the local lawmakers are made the head of the zonal committees. This was predeceased by the system of several zonal committees; which was headed by the deputy commissioners of the districts and the lawmakers acted as the advisers. This system was later replaced for better prevention of violence.

Not only does the local lawmakers get to be part of the committee but so does the local administrative officers, owners of the companies and the company workers. The meetings that were supposed to take place once every month does not happen so mainly because of the busy schedules of the lawmakers; leading to the meetings taking place only when there is crisis outbreak. Some refute this by saying that not only is this because of the lawmakers but everyone else as well, since not always can one synchronize their time.

Whatever might the reason be this issue could be easily resolved only if the garment owners and the BGMEA leaders pushed the committee a little for the meeting regularly.
