DHAKA - Bangladesh has re-opened hundreds of garment factories after just three days of closure following protests over pay and poor work conditions.
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association had called for the re-opening on Friday.
The shutdown of factories this week was prompted by worker protests over low pay and poor working conditions sparked by the country's worst industrial accident.
In response to workers' demands, the Bangladeshi government has approved labor law changes, making it easier for workers to form unions. The government has also set up a panel to consider garment workers salary raise.
Pope Francis has described the garment workers' $38 monthly wage as "slave labor."
Bangladesh is the world's second largest apparel maker after China. The $20 billion industry accounts for up to 80 per cent of annual exports.
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers' and Exporters' Association says about 85% of employees were back at work. They will get overtime for working on a Friday, a weekend day in Bangladesh.
The manufacturers have accused the workers of disrupting production and say they will not pay wages for the last few days.
Badrul Alam, police chief for the Ashulia district, told the Agence France Presse news agency that there had been "no reports of any protest or violence" after the reopening. ...
