Cross-sector social partners fail to agree on working time [24 January 2013]
Employers and employees have failed to agree on reforms to the EU Working Time Directive after more than a year of discussions. Despite having earlier asked for a deadline extension, the EU-level cross-sector social partners announced in mid-December that talks were being abandoned. The employers’ group has said it made solid proposals to make compromise possible on contentious issues. Union representatives, however, say that the ‘final offer’ was not sufficiently balanced.
