No Deal Reached On Working Time

Commenting on the fact no deal was reached yesterday by the European Council and Parliament on the opt out to the EU Working Time Directive, John Cridland, CBI Deputy-Director General said: "As negotiations continue, the common position agreed by national governments last year must be respected. This agreement retained the right for workers to choose to work more than 48 hours a week.

"A ban on working more than 48 hours a week will affect people across the economy. It would replace opportunity with obstruction.

"Banning longer hours could also have unintended consequences. It could stop staff in a company that is fighting for survival from going the extra mile, or prevent somebody earning overtime to support their family in hard times. If your partner has lost their job, should Brussels stop you from putting in overtime to support your family?"
