Info ministry holds meeting with stakeholders on media employees’ act

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on Sunday held a meeting with journalist bodies and other stakeholders on the draft of the proposed “Mass Media Employees (Conditions of Service) Act”.

The ministry organized the meeting as per its fresh initiative to take the opinions of the stakeholders to ensure in the new law all the rights the media workers deserve.

State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Mohammad Ali Arafat presided over the meeting at the ministry’s conference room in the Bangladesh Secretariat, said a press release.

Speaking at the meeting, he said the proposed media employees act will ensure all types of protections that the journalists deserve under the labour law.

It will be examined whether the proposed law covers 100% benefits that media employees are supposed to get under the labour law, Arafat added.

Assuring that there will be no loophole in the proposed law over the protection of media workers’ rights under the labour law, he said, if any error is noticed in this regard while reviewing the draft, it will be corrected.
