Most workers have returned to work after the Tết holiday, according to trade unions at different levels.

Report of the Hà Nội Trade Union said that by Monday, the 10th day of the Lunar New Year, all enterprises opened for production with all workers returning to work.

Nguyễn Huy Khánh, Deputy Chairman of the Hà Nội Federation of Labour, said that before, during and after the Lunar New Year holiday, the labour situation in the capital was stable.

During Tết holiday, as many as 372 workers stayed in boarding houses in Long Biên, Hoàng Mai, Gia Lâm and Mê Linh districts, not returning to their hometowns.

District labour federations visited and gave gifts to them with VNĐ1 million (US$40) per person.

In Thái Nguyên northern province, more than 98 per cent of workers have returned to their workplaces safely.

Enterprises with foreign direct investment (FDI) resumed production last Thursday in accordance with regulations.

Representatives of grassroots-level trade unions in Đồng Nai southern province said that nearly 90 per cent of workers in both business sector and administrative agencies had come back to work.

The same situation was reported in Đồng Tháp southern province.

The provincial Labour Federation said that after the Lunar New Year holiday, 95 per cent of workers return to work as usual.

Nguyễn Thanh Nhàn, Deputy Chairman of the Đồng Tháp Trade Union of Industrial and Economic Zones, said that most of the labourers worked in Sa Đéc, Trần Quốc Toản and Sông Hậu industrial zones.

He added that it was an exciting sign in the context that many businesses in the province were worried about worker shortage after Tết holiday.

Expressing their joy with the good signal and receiving a number of long-term orders, many business owners went to workshops to encourage and wish workers a happy new year on the first working day of the new year.

On this occasion, some businesses also gave lucky money to workers.

Đồng Tháp Province has more than 47,200 workers.

Deputy Chairwoman of the Đồng Tháp Labour Federation Huỳnh Thị Thu Thủy said that some businesses faced difficulties but still ensured that at the beginning of the year, workers received lucky money of VNĐ100,000-200,000 ($4-8) per person.

Enterprises organised different activities to welcome workers back, such as lion dance and new year party.

On the occasion of the Tết holiday, the province organised 338 programmes totally worth more than VNĐ20 billion ($81,800) to take care of more than 63,000 workers.

To connect the labour market, on Thursday this week, nine employment service centres in the northern region will launch online job connection sessions.
