Hanoi (VNA)
– President of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) Nguyen Dinh Khang has suggested the Federation of Korea Trade Unions (FKTU) increase the sharing of experience with its Vietnamese counterpart.

The two agencies should support each other in building harmonious labour relations, thus protecting the legal rights and interests of guest workers, especially Vietnamese labourers in the Republic of Korea (RoK), Khang said at a reception for FKTU President Juyoung Kim in Hanoi on September 18.

He urged the two sides to continue implementing their cooperation agreement signed in 2016, maintain the exchange of high-ranking delegations and deepen collaboration between trade unions of sectors and localities.

The official said since the VGCL and the FKTU established their relationship in 1993, bilateral cooperation has yielded fruits.

They exchanged information and experience in protecting rights of labourers and ensuring gender equality, and joined hands in promoting policies to create jobs, prevent unemployment, increase social insurance and welfare, improve minimum wages and ensure safety and sanitation in the workplace. 

For his part, Kim pledged efforts to protect legal rights and interests of Vietnamese workers in the RoK, and expressed his hope that the VGCL will send more delegations to the RoK to enhance cooperation between the two agencies./.
