HCM City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City Labour Federation will take part in providing vocational training for workers to change occupations for better working environment and incomes, said Vice President of the federation Tran Doan Trung on December 14.

Talking about orientations for vocation change in the 2020-2023 period, Trung said the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), where artificial intelligence and machines will gradually replace manual workers, will lead to the formation of new jobs and services serving its demand.

According to Trung, most of local workers, particularly those in garment-textiles, footwear, electronics, and seafood processing, have yet to be trained or undergo formal training. As a result, vocational training becomes a demand of many labourers and enterprises.

The federation plans to build policies and regulations to monitor the training of workers for job change, enhance capacity of trade unions in engaging in the work, implement related emulation campaigns, and mobilise resources for the training.

It aims to have all trade unions with demand for occupational change negotiating to make the content included in collective labour agreements in 2023./.
