UK work time opt-out under threat

Post by yukon » Wed Dec 17, 2008 11:53 am

Britain has moved a step closer to being forced to limit the working week to 48 hours for all employees. Euro MPs have voted in
favour of ending Britain's opt-out from the EU working time directive.

Britain is determined to keep the opt-out and will now start talks with EU ministers in an effort to keep it.

The UK does not have a veto on the issue but it is expected to join forces with other countries who back its position in
order to get its way.

Would like to hear from some Brits on this issue. Your living with the situation and the proposed changes so how about
your take on the issue. Is this a good or bad thing or are you indifferent to it?
