Trade union development gets Danish support

QĐND – Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 20:41 (GMT+7)

A programme supported by Denmark to assist the private business sector to strengthen capacity for trade unions, beginning in 2005, has brought remarkable results, said the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) on October 26.

The VGCL summed up the five-year implementation of the programme’s second component, which has helped trade unions in Nghe An, Khanh Hoa and Lam Dong provinces attract more members and set up grassroots trade unions.

The programme has also helped improve trade unionists’ capacity for negotiating, signing and supervising collective agreements on labour safety and hygiene, and settling disputes.

Up to now, the three provinces’ trade unions have admitted 30,500 members, set up 751 grassroots branches, and signed 238 new collective agreements.

These agreements focus on major issues such as salaries, working time, leave, welfare, bonuses and insurance.

The programme with financial support from the Danish International Development Cooperation Agency (DANIDA), aims to assist the Vietnamese Government, trade unions and employers to improve competitiveness in the business sector.
