Workers Resource Centre goes digital amid Covid-19

News | 01 June 2020
DHAKA (ILO News) - The Workers Resource Centre (WRC) in Bangladesh has launched a website to inform and serve workers’ organizations online.

WRC is a joint platform of two leading worker organizations - National Coordination Committee for Workers Education (NCCWE) and the IndustriALL Bangladesh Council (IBC).

Established in 2017, the WRC serves a one-stop-shop for workers needing information, education and assistance on labour-related grievance. The WRC also supports and promotes social dialogue and alternative dispute prevention and resolution, and builds the capacity of trade unions to operate more efficiently.

“This website is a timely and useful tool, and will help WRC to maintain a digital presence,” said Neeran Ramjuthan, Chief Technical Adviser of ILO’s Social Dialogue and Industrial Relations (SDIR) project. “It is hoped that through its official website, the WRC can continue to provide some of its services during the Covid-19 pandemic which has enforced social distancing and led to increased use of computers and mobile phones.”

The WRC is supported by the ILO’s SDIR project financed by the Governments of Denmark and Sweden.
