Gov’t cares for interests of guest workers in Jordan
07:22 | 21/03/2008
VNGOP – In mid-February 2008, more than 200 Vietnamese employees at the W&D Apparel factory (Hoa Sơn Company) in Jordan went on strike over the employer’s pay calculations.

The Government was following the walk-out and ordered the relevant agencies to settle the case soon in order to protect legal interests of Vietnamese workers. Right after knowing the strike, a working team from the ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs was dispatched to Jordan to directly meet the workers and work with Jordan’s competent agencies and the employer.

At present, Việt Nam is working with Jordanian counterparts to settle the case in line with the two countries’ laws to ensure the legitimate interests of the workers. Those employees who want to repatriate will be carried home as soon as possible.
