PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc: trade union reform in its operation promoted

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has urged trade union organisations to renovate operation comprehensively and promote their role in guiding workers' movements in the new situation.

Speaking at a ceremony held by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour in Hanoi to mark the 90th founding anniversary of the Vietnam Trade Union on July 28, the Prime Minister asked all-level trade union organisations to thoroughly grasp the Party's relevant guidelines and policies on continuing to build the Vietnamese worker class in the context of industrialisation and modernisation. The communication work should be intensified in order to raise the quality of trade union members, thus improving their political will, patriotism, national pride and law observance. He highlighted the core function of the trade union to represent, take care of and protect legitimate rights and interests of labourers. He asked trade union organisations to coordinate with competent agencies to promptly handle issues that draw concern of employees. Apart from reforming operational methods, they should pay attention to developing the contingent of trade union officials in an effective and streamlining manner. The Prime Minister lauded all-level trade union organisations for their efforts in organising many meaningful activities in support of labourers over the past time. He also affirmed the Party and the State's further support to the trade union organisations in fulfilling its role and tasks in the new situation.
