Organizing Seminar

New trade unions are organized in order to increase the number of comrades as much as possible. Increasing the number of union members is one of the most important activities of a trade union.

In Viet Nam, it is stipulated by law that all companies have an obligation to establish a union. In reality, however, there are companies without unions and unions that are inactive. Therefore, organizing seminars have been held in Viet Nam for company workers and union personnel in charge of organizing. The FY 2007 seminar, which was for union leaders active especially in Japanese companies located on an industrial estate in the suburbs of Hanoi, introduced labour-management relations of Japan and Japan's experience in forming and strengthening organizations. With the aim of improving labour-management relations in the Japanese companies where they worked, participants visited the companies and requested the understanding and cooperation of managers in the formation of unions and union activities.
