The families of Tazreen fire victims on Monday demanded compensation from the government before the Eid-ul-Fitr, expressing their frustration that they did not get any compensation even after 20 months of the blaze that left 112 workers killed at Tazreen Fashions Limited at Savar.
From a press conference and human chain in front of National Press Club, they raised their four-point demand including compensation before the Eid. The families of the victims organised the press conference.
They urged the government to establish a cell to deal with the garments workers’ demands and complaints.
They also demanded arrangement of new jobs for the injured workers of Tazreen Fashions.
In a written statement, they called for updating the existing rules relating to payment of compensation money in the labour law.
A fire broke out at Tazreen Fashions Limited at Ashulia in Savar on November 24, 2012 that left 112 workers killed and scores of others injured.
