A meeting of the Bangladesh Committee of the WFTU was held in the capital’s Purana Paltan on Thursday.
Member of the Presidential Council of the WFTU and convener of Bangladesh Committee Dr Wazedul Islam Khan moderated the meeting.
Two deputy General Secretaries of the WFTU H. Mahadevan and Swadesh Dev Roy spoke at the meeting.
The leaders of World Trade Union Federation said that there is no alternative to democratic labour law, trade union rights, fair wages and labour security.
They alleged that the developed countries are earning a huge amount of money by exploiting the labourers of the underdeveloped and developing countries.
Because of their exploitation, some employment opportunities have been created, but in fact it is destroying the poor countries economically.
Among others, President of Bangladesh Trade Union Centre Shohidullah Chowdhury, President of Jatiya Sramik Jote Mesbah Uddin Ahmed and General Secretary of Samajtantrik Sramik Front Rashekujjaman Rokon were present at the programme. (WFTU)
