At the end of the meeting, chairman of the wage board, Liaqat Ali Molla, said, “The owner will propose a new wage in the second week of the current month.”

However, they did not give any idea in today’s meeting about how much the wages will be increased, he said.

The owner’s representative Siddiqur Rahman said, ‘We have decided to increase the wage offer. A new proposal will be made next week.’

Earlier, in the fourth meeting of the wage board on October 22, the representative of the labor side proposed a minimum wage of Tk 20,393. However, the owner offered Tk 10,400 against that.

From the day after that meeting, the workers started a movement to demand an increase in wages in Gazipur. Later this movement of workers spread to Ashulia-Savar. During the movement, 2 workers were killed last Monday. The agitation became more violent from the next day.

The minimum wage for garment workers is expected to come into force in the country from December this year.
