Bangladesh  Government allows Trade Unions  to function with Some Restrictions


The government has relaxed the ban on trade-union activities at industries, commercial enterprises, ports and factories on certain conditions.

The order will come into effect immediately, a home ministry notification said yesterday.

Trade-union activities were shut down after the state of emergency was declared across the country on January 11 last year.

The gazette said labor rights bodies can carry out their activities under the Bangladesh Labour Act 2006 on a limited scale at any place in the country.

Election to collective bargaining agents (CBA) is now possible on permission from police commissioners in city corporation areas and from district magistrates elsewhere.

The trade unions will have to report to metropolitan police commissioners, district magistrates and in some cases upazila nirbahi officers (UNO) 48 hours ahead of any meetings of not more than 100 people.

Permission from the officials will be required should such meetings draw over 100 people, the notification said adding that no gatherings exceeding 500 people will be permitted.
