The Bangladesh Jatiya Sramik League is a national trade union federation in Bangladesh.[1] It is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation. The President of the union is Sukur Mahmud.[2]


Bangladesh Jatiya Sramik League was founded in 1969 by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,[3] It is politically tied to the Awami League.[4] The Union was absolved in 1975 with BAKSAL due to an amendment to the constitution of Bangladesh. BJSL also had an armed wing Lal Bahini during 1972-1975.[5]
