HCM City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City Labour Confederation has set to enroll 90,000 new members and establish its chapters in active businesses with over-20-member employment in 2016.

The targets are part of the confederation’s goals set for the 2013-2018 tenure, which include having additional 500,000 members and setting up trade unions in all active businesses which recruit more than 10 workers.

Kieu Ngoc Vu, Vice President of the municipal Labour Confederation, said the confederation standing committee will step up communication work as well as issue more instructions to realise the set goals.

In 2015, the municipal Labour Confederation set up 1,769 chapters with 115,000 members, bringing its total membership to 1,181,000.-VNA
