NDO - The Party Central Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission (PCCMMC) held a working session with the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) in Hanoi, on July 12, to discuss the scheme regarding Renovation of the Organisation and Operation of the Vietnam Trade Union in the present situation.

Politburo member, Secretary of the Party Central Committee and Head of PCCMMC Truong Thi Mai presided over the meeting.

Speaking at the meeting, Politburo Member Truong Thi Mai spoke highly of the VGCL’s efforts in updating the new data in the scheme.

As the representatives of the Vietnamese working class and in their role of protecting the rights and interests of workers, the VGCL is playing a very important role in building trust among the public, and workers across the country, in the leadership of the Party.

She stressed that the Trade Union should strengthen its role as the link between the Party, State and workers, as well as encouraging its members to become more actively involved in emulation movements related to production and to build a stronger working class.

According to VGCL President Bui Van Cuong, renovation of the organisation and operation of the Vietnam trade unions at all levels is an urgent requirement in order to promote the role of trade unions in the political system, as well as to better serve the legal and legitimate aspirations of its members.

It is necessary to build trade unions in a synchronous and effective manner, actively develop labour relations in accordance with the law, while at the same time maintain the unity of the workers as a solid block under the leadership of the Party, in order to develop the country and build a contingent of qualified staff, he added.

Participants at the meeting also contributed many comments on issues related to the finalisation of the scheme, such as modifying the layout and contents of the scheme; the statement and the draft resolutions, etc.

They also urged the VGCL to continue to build trade unions at all levels and improve their operations, in addition to enhancing the dissemination of information to help workers understand the Party and State guidelines and policies concerning their rights and obligations.
