A general directive to members regarding opening / closing of factories

Dear Members,

To keep the economy running, and considering the overall situation BGMEA will advise you on opening of factories. 
Until this direction is received, you are kindly requested not to ask workers (who are in their villages) to return to Dhaka. 
A zone wise staggered approach will be adopted to open the factories in a limited capacity. In first phase, you are advised to ask only the workers who are living nearby your factories to join.
Regarding retrenchment- 
BGMEA is requesting your not to retrench any workers on humanitarian ground. If under any circumstances, the workers residing outside return to Dhaka in an unsupported and irregular way, then BGMEA will not be able to help you as an association in this regards. Your factory opening date will be communicated to you through email.
