Five garment firms based in the Van Lam district of Vietnam’s Hung Yen province recently signed collective labour pacts with their employees. Ha Hung JSC, Viet Phat Co Ltd, Suntex Co Ltd, Nhat Hoa Production and Trade Co Ltd and Y&I Co Ltd and representatives of their workers inked the deals in an event hosted by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour.

It was part of a project to promote effective negotiation in the textile and garment industry funded by the Dutch National Federation of Christian Trade Unions (CNV), according to a news agency report.

Under the agreements, the firms must reward at least one month’s salary as a bonus at the end of the year for those who work a full 12 months and give a bonus to those who come up with innovative ideas or high productivity. They must also provide clean and healthy meals, worth at least 16,000 VND per meal per person, for their employees.

Additionally, in each shift, the workers are allowed to have a short break of at least 10 minutes while the companies promised to take the workers on retreats.

Employees must abide by the provisions of law, labour contracts, workplace rules and the labour agreements.

A recent survey conducted by the Institute of Workers and Trade shows the wages of textile labourers are not high enough for them to afford living expenses. About 65 per cent of the workers in the survey have to work extra time regularly. About 53 per cent cannot afford the cost of healthcare. (DS)
