HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs has requested localities to encourage talks between employers and employees in industrial and processing zones to promptly respond to issues faced by the labourers and prevent labour disputes and strikes.
In particular, dialogues should be held especially between employees and employers in large-scale enterprises, the ministry said.
To prevent and limit labour disputes, the ministry has also asked provinces and cities to intensify inspection, examination and supervision of the observance of labour regulations and strictly deal with violations.
Problems such as wages, overtime work, welfare and social insurance are always at risk of leading to disputes between employees and employers.
Local authorities were also required to actively support negotiations in dealing with any problems that may arise.
The Việt Nam General Confederation of Labour and the Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry were asked to promote labourers’ awareness on policies and law to address issues that arise in labour relations. — VNS
