HCM CITY (VNS) — Trade unions in southern localities will support workers with gifts and bus tickets during Tet, which falls in the middle of February this year.

In Binh Duong Province, the provincial Federation of Labour planned to give free bus tickets to 1,220 workers from central and northern provinces to travel home for the holiday. The federation is giving 10 per cent more workers tickets than last year.

The union also organised a number of art performances, and proposed that the Binh Duong People's Committee give 6,000 gifts to low-income workers, said Nguyen Thien Phuoc, vice chairman of the federation.

Meanwhile, Dong Nai Province mobilised about VND80 billion (US$3.8 million)to support its workers. Aside from offering free bus tickets, the province will present gifts to about 400 families who cannot afford to go back to their hometowns for the holiday.

HCM City, which houses 15 economic zones and industrial parks with 280,000 workers, will give out 6,000 bus tickets and 1,500 gifts to poor workers.

Huynh Cong Khanh, chairman of the Trade Union for export processing zones and industrial parks in HCM City, said the board would work with local processing zones and industrial parks to monitor wage, salary and bonus payments for workers. — VNS
