New guide on working time reduction


A new guide from the European Trade Union Institute, produced with the support of EPSU, examines the question of working time reduction. It looks at recent trends, noting that the issue has dropped off the bargaining agenda for many unions. This guide runs through the different reasons for implementing such a reduction, and the ways in which it can be organised. It includes several case studies and many other examples, going back to some of the earliest initiatives that recognised the safety and productivity benefits of the shorter working day and week.
