    A new voice for garment workers

    24 April 2014

    Ruma Akter is one of Bangladesh's approximately four million garment workers. She is a working mother with a young son, and she is the leader of one of Bangladesh's newly-registered trade unions. Spurred on by the stream of horrific incidents happening in garment factories around her, and inspired by television talk shows watched in small tea stands, she started gathering workers together last year. It has taken about six months, but the Welltex Sromik (Workers) Union is now formally registered and has almost 500 members - and the changes in the factory are visible to everyone.
