IT’S EMERGED TODAY that staff at the European Parliament are refusing to consider working a 40-hour week.
The trade union which represents the staff has said that plans to ask workers to stay an extra 30 minutes a day have hit a dead end, as it would have a negative impact on their home and personal lives.
Union reps have also said that while staff often get a half day or a day off on a Friday, they put in long hours Monday to Thursday. A flexi-time system allows them to take time off in lieu if they go over 37.5 hours a week.
It got us to thinking how much time you’re clocking in for every week, whether it be at home or outside the home…
How many hours a week do you work?
