HÀ NỘI – The Hà Nội Confederation of Labour (HCL) will offer bus tickets to 1,400 disadvantaged workers to travel home on the Tết (Lunar New Year).
In particular, tickets will be provided to those working in industrial and processing zones, as well as the garment sectors.
Under the scheme, workers will be transported on three routes, Hà Nội-Thanh Hóa, Hà Nội-Hà Tĩnh and Hà Nội-Nghệ An. Coaches will pick up workers at Thăng Long Industrial Zone, Quang Minh Industrial Zone and the office of the Hà Nội Confederation of Labour on No 3 Chu Văn An Street in Hà Đông District on January 25, two days before the Tết holiday begins.
The HCL has asked labour unions at industrial zones and garment sectors to choose those qualifying workers.
In addition, trade unions in industrial zones are expected to arrange coaches free of charge to transport poor workers who wish to return to their homes to celebrate Tết with their families, according to HCL.
The upcoming Lunar New Year will begin on January 28.
The government has approved a seven-day break for the holiday from January 26 to February 1. — VNS
