Zhejiang Provincial Government and Zhejiang Provincial Federation of Trade Unions held a joint conference on January 16. Governor Yuan Jiajun stressed that trader unions at all levels in the province should hold high the great banner of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, fully implement the spirits of the 19th CPC National Congress and the 14th CPC Zhejiang Provincial Congress, hold fast to the general requirements of serving the overall situation, the workers and the grassroots in accordance with the demands for mass organization reform made by the central Party committee and the provincial Party committee, find proper breakthrough points into trade union work with a focus on key aspects, and take the initiative to perform duties and make achievements, in a bid to unite and mobilize all the workers in the province to make new contributions to achieving the goal of “Two High Levels”.
The governor fully affirmed the important contributions that the trade unions at all levels and the workers have made to Zhejiang’s reform and development. He pointed out that this year is the first year to fully carry out the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress. At present, centering around the construction of “Two High Levels”, “Powerful Province in Four Aspects” and “Strong Zhejiang in Six Aspects”, we have been vigorously implementing ten action plans to build a strong, prosperous Zhejiang. We should profoundly consider the ideas and major tasks concerning Zhejiang’s reform and development this year and in the following 5 years. The trade unions at all levels are hoped to achieve more in serving the high quality development, focusing on the new economy with the digital economy at the core, strategic emerging industries, high and new technology industries, and 8 major trillion industries. Trade unions should perform a more active role in building platforms for workers’ professional growth and developing a much larger group of modern industrial workers to support “Made in Zhejiang” and “Created in Zhejiang”, while building up brands such as “Zhejiang Model Worker” and “Zhejiang Craftsman” to vigorously foster respect for model workers and promote hard working spirit and quality workmanship. Government agencies, enterprises, universities and other social forces should work together to train a group of top-ranking craftsmen. Trade unions should do more to safeguard workers’ legitimate rights and interests and build a new system to provide inclusive online and offline services for them, while continuing to create new service models and promote the construction of harmonious labor relations so that employees and enterprises can grow together and achieve common prosperity. In addition, sticking to the leadership of the Party and the correct political direction, trade unions should also do more to push forward their own reform, expand the reform to the grassroots level and new areas, and lead all the workers to follow the Party.
