Letter to PM Hasina on Response to Ashulia Wage Protests

Letter by the Steering Committee members of the Accord on Fire & Building Safety in Bangladesh to the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The Accord is deeply concerned by the Government’s response to the recent RMG industry unrest and wage protests in Ashulia, including recent detentions and termination from employment of individuals with union affiliation and who promote workers’ rights. The Accord requests the Office of the Prime Minister to take immediate action to ensure that RMG workers’ rights are protected and that any associated cases of unjust detention, employment termination, and/or fundamental rights violations be urgently rectified consistent with the law and ILO Conventions.
