Unions to enhance services

LABOR unions need to improve services for unemployed migrant workers hit by the economic slowdown, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions said yesterday in Beijing.

The transfer of migrant workers' membership back to unions in their hometowns needs to be improved, and unions need to provide vocational training, small-business loans, and entrepreneurship programs to help them find new jobs, the federation said.

It also urged labor unions at all levels to perfect management and attract as many migrant workers as possible, especially the 20 million jobless workers likely to remain in their hometowns after the Spring Festival.

The federation would strive for a net increase of 5 million new members this year. The federation also demanded more protection of migrant workers' interests amid the global financial crisis.

Sixty-six million of the country's 200 million migrant workers had joined labor unions, the federation said.
