18:55 | 14/06/2019
VGP – The National Assembly of Viet Nam officially ratified the International Labor Organization’s Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining Convention with 100% law-makers casting supportive votes.

Law-makers cast votes  to ratify the International Labor Organization’s Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining Convention in the last sitting day of the National Assembly's 7th working session that take place from May 20 to June 14, 2019
This is the 6th ILO’s convention that Viet Nam has ratified so far.

Dao Ngoc Dung, Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), said Viet Nam will continue preparations to approve the Abolition of Forced Labor Convention (Convention 105) in 2020 and Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize Convention (Convention 87) in 2023.

“All member States should respect, uphold and apply key principles of FPRW, regardless of level of development, as it is based on global consensus among member States of the World Trade Organization and ILO about what should be basic and universal labor conditions for fair trade of goods and services in a globalized economy,” said ILO Viet Nam Director Chang-Hee Lee. 

It is why the eight core conventions under FPRW have entered into languages of free trade agreements (FTAs), particularly new generation FTAs such as CPPTPP (The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) and the FTA between the EU and Viet Nam (EVFTA), and also into most of corporate socially responsible statements of MNCs. 

In the context of Viet Nam’s deeper international integration by joining FTAs, MOLISA Vice Minister Doan Mau Diep said the roles and significance of ILO conventions, including Convention 98, have been reaffirmed./.
