HA NOI — President Truong Tan Sang applauded the Viet Nam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) for its efforts to protect the rights of workers nationwide and raise awareness among workers about Government and Party policies at the 8th VGCL Executive Committee conference held yesterday.
Conference participants agreed that the labour confederation had successfully implemented all the resolutions passed at the 10th National Congress of Vietnamese Trade Unions. Trade unions at all levels had launched many diverse programmes to attract workers in all sectors and accurately reflected their concerns and aspirations to the Party and Government, they said.
Members also discussed the problems and challenges facing workers nationwide. In some sectors, they have not been able to catch up with new technologies and improve working methods according to international standards. In many areas, workers are also subjected to inadequate working and living conditions and the relationships between employees and employers continue to pose many problems.
President Sang instructed the unions at all levels to continue studying and implementing all Party resolutions related to the working class. They must also work harder to protect the rights of members, workers and contribute to building Government and Party policies that could further benefit the working class, he said. — VNS
