In terms of wages and bonuses, during Tet, the capital’s Trade Unions organised a plan to provide Tet care for workers and civil servants, while also increasing inspections and monitoring of the payment of wages, bonuses and other benefits. The majority of businesses still tried to ensure wages for workers, however, Tet bonuses were significantly lower than the previous year due to some difficulties in production and business.

Specifically, the Lunar New Year bonus decreased by 16.67% to 32.31% compared to the previous year, while the Tet bonus decreased by 1.41% to 2.44% compared to the 2023 Lunar New Year. The deepest cuts were often seen in industries such as textiles, footwear, electronics and wood processing.

However, care activities for union members and workers during Tet were still carried out. The capital’s Trade Unions organised many programmes such as “Tet Reunion - Spring Sharing”, and “Trade Union Tet Market”, providing support, visiting and giving gifts to union members and workers. In total, more than 513,000 union members and workers received support and gifts worth more than VND188 billion.
