13 October, 2016Trade union leaders in Bangladesh called on the government to stop precarious work in the country as quickly as possible, following a meeting organized by the National Garment Workers Federation (NGWF) in Dhaka on 7 October - the World Day for Decent Work. 

The NGWF union leaders said decent work includes workers’ rights to a safe workplace, a living wage and rights to organize or join in trade union.

The speakers expressed deep concern at the continued increase of precarious jobs in Bangladesh, while permanent safe and decent jobs are in decline.
