The Party has voted to implement a series of measures to move the country towards a 32-hour week within a decade. These measures include a gradual increase in bank holidays, strengthened trade unions, and limits on maximum hours of working time.
The Campaign enthusiastically welcomes these concrete proposals which will help to address the crisis of overwork and ensure that the gains of the economy – especially in relation to new forms of automation – are shared fairly with workers in the form of more leisure time. This decision follows a positive response to a report released by the Campaign earlier in the year.
Statement from the campaign:
Moving to a four-day week will drastically improve the lives of people up and down the country by giving them back the time to spend with their communities, their friends, their families and their loved ones. This is the boldest attempt to transform and improve people’s lives in a century.
