Situational Assessment of Professional and Technical Occupation Associations


Most skilled workers in Vietnam are members of science, technology or professional associations that represent and protect the rights and interests of their members. However, they are facing difficulties and challenges including organizational capacity and resources for more sustainable and efficient operations. These associations and their members have limited knowledge of their labor rights as well as labor laws. Moreover, current policy forums tend to focus more on the workplace in factories, where industrial relation is more straightforward; therefore, little attention is paid to the problems encountered by intellectual and skilled workers in the informal sector.
