The government has formed a new committee which will review the existing salaries of the Readymade garment (RMG) industry workers.
State Minister for Labour and Employment Mujibul Haque Chunnu made the disclosure at a press conference at the Secretariat on Sunday.
BGMEA President Siddiqur Rahman and Women's Affairs Secretary of Jatiya Sramik League Shamsunnahar Bhuiyan have been made the members of the six-member wage board which has four other permanent members.
The state minister said: "The committee has been asked to submit a report with recommendations within six months after scrutinising the present salary structure of the RMG workers."
The new wage structure will be announced once the report is submitted, he added.
