(HBO) – Secretary of the Hoa Binh provincial Party Committee Bui Van Tinh, Vice Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Council Tran Dang Ninh, and Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Bui Van Khanh have held a working session with the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) in Hanoi.

VGCL President Bui Van Cuong participated in the working session with the Hoa Binh officials.

According to the provincial leaders, Hoa Binh is currently home to nearly 3,000 businesses, eight industrial parks and 21 industrial clusters which employ about 90,000 workers. There are also 1,625 grassroots trade unions in the province. In 2017, the provincial Confederation of Labour has actively proposed the provincial Party Committee and the VGCL major orientations for its activities and all-level trade unions. It has coordinated closely with authorities, Vietnam Fatherland Front committees and relevant agencies to step up examining and supervising the implementation of labour law. It has also worked to grasp the situation of local workers so as to direct relevant activities of all-level trade unions in a timely manner.

They said the provincial Confederation of Labour has paid attention to caring for and protecting rights and legitimate interests of trade union members and workers.  Over 90 percent of local workers have been covered by social and health insurance. Labourers have also been encouraged to donate to education promotion and flood prevention funds.

The provincial confederation has pushed ahead with a programme on improving the quality of negotiating, signing and implementing collective labour agreements. It has sued companies that did not pay social, health and unemployment insurance premiums while continuing to settle any labour disputes arising.

Meanwhile, law dissemination among workers and trade union staff, training in occupational health and safety, and a programme on improving workers and trade union members’ professional skills have been done well.

Sixteen grassroots trade unions were established and 2,048 workers became trade union members in 2017, according to the provincial confederation.

Speaking at the working session, VGCL President Bui Van Cuong expressed his delight at the outcomes of provincial authorities’ direction for socio-economic development and defence-security consolidation over the past years, especially workers’ movements and trade unions’ activities.

Hoa Binh should work with the VGCL to ensure effective operations of local cultural institutions and trade unions, he said, adding that the VGCL will cooperate with Hoa Binh to develop Kim Boi resort and consider investing in a resort and tourism activities on Hoa Binh Lake./.
