NDO/VNA – Party General Secretary and President Nguyen PhuTrong met with 90 outstanding leaders of local trade unions in 2019 and 10 trade union officials receiving Nguyen Van Linh Awards in Hanoi on July 20.

The Nguyen Van Linh Award, the first of its kind organised by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL), aims to honour trade union officials who had effective, creative initiatives and solutions to improve trade union operations, benefiting labourers and contributing to the development of localities, agencies and units.

At the meeting, the Party and State leader highly valued positive contributions of workers’ movements and trade unions across the country over the years.

He lauded the VGCL’s idea of organising the award, stressing the significant role of the working class and trade unions at all levels in the revolution path of the Party and nation.

He expressed his hope that the honoured officials will continue making more contributions in trade union activities.

He asked local trade union officials to focus on improving the political firmness of workers and public servants by strengthening communications on the historical missions of the working class, while educating them on patriotism and national pride.

The leader said that today, workers’ patriotism is shown in efforts to improve capacity, skills and creativity as well as determination to overcome poverty and any difficulties in their way.

The leader also highlighted the need for trade unions at all levels to pay greater attention to ensuring the legitimate rights and interest of their members, while showing strong performances as their representative.

Trade union officials at all levels must continue reforming and bettering operational methods and efficiency to suit the current situation and the country’s development, he asked.

The meeting was held on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Vietnam Trade Union.
