The annual working time survey by the EIRO industrial relations observatory found that in almost all countries, average agreed weekly working hours in 2008 were identical to those in 2007. The only exceptions were a small decrease (- 0.4 hours) in Slovakia and a small rise (+ 0.4 hours) in Spain. The survey points out that there have been no notable reductions in hours since 2003 and that the issue has more or less disappeared from the bargaining agenda.
