Four-Day Week Now

Date
Tue 24.09.19
Timings
11am – 12:30pm

What would a four-day week would mean for you on the job, how it would work on a day to day basis and what we need to demand of our employers to make it happen?

Over the past years there has been a growing interest in the idea of a four-day week amongst activists, politicians and economists. The debate has moved from mere chapters in books to policy documents and even successful campaigns in the workplace. Today, the Labour leadership, the Party membership and the general public firmly believe that the shorter working week is a future worth fighting for.

The question for all of us is: how can we make it work in our workplaces?
