The Hanoi Labour Federation has planned support activities to help poor workers and disadvantaged people enjoy a warm Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday, which falls in mid-February, 2015.

As many as 3,000 workers in Hanoi’s industrial parks and export processing zones, who have hailed from other localities, will be transported home by buses free of charge.

Additionally, the federation will present Tet gifts to poor workers, disadvantaged children, and policy beneficiary families.

It has guided trade unions at all levels to monitor the payment of wage and Tet bonus for workers, while working with relevant authorities and businesses to timely address difficulties facing them.

Last year, the federation worked with businesses based in the city to provide free travel for more than 2,000 workers to go home in Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces.

This form of assistance has become an annual event since 2009.-VNA
