National consultation with UN mandate holders featured in Bangladesh news

“Rights activists and labour leaders yesterday called for trade unions at all garment factories to give the workers a platform to ensure their rights. They also favoured a system of determining the minimum wages for garments workers by considering the cost of living, and not just by taking food inflation into account.
