Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has agreed with the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL)’s proposal to pilot a project on building residential areas, supermarkets, pre-schools, cultural houses and legal assistance centres serving workers at 15 industrial and processing zones.

The PM gave the nod at a working session with the VGCL Presidium in Hanoi on July 9.

He urged the confederation to play a more active role in studying labourers’ working and living conditions as well as their legitimate aspirations, and report them to the Government.

The leader called on the VGCL to step up its coordination with the Government in protecting workers’ legitimate rights and interests.

Closer collaboration is needed to fulfill the two sides’ set targets, firstly implementing emulation campaigns aiming to spur production and economic development, and raise labourers’ living standards, he said.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked all-level trade unions to partner with relevant agencies and employers to improve productivity, thus increasing workers’ incomes.

The VGCL proposed the PM instruct the Vietnam Social Insurance to share information with the confederation, helping bring to light violations of the social insurance law.

According to the confederation, labourers are concerned about regional minimum wage, social and health insurance, infrastructure at industrial and processing zones, labour safety and hygiene, and challenges stemming from Vietnam’s international integration, especially after the country joins the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.

The PM said he has assigned the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to submit the draft Law on Minimum Wage so that the Government can suggest adding the document to the 14 th National Assembly’s law-making programme during its upcoming session.-VNA
