EU consultation on the Working Time Directive

Back in September 2009, the incoming Commission announced that it would launch a new review of the Working Time Directive (WTD), based on a two-stage consultation of the social partners in accordance with Article 154 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

It will come as no surprise to UK solicitors that the clear message from the first stage of the consultation, launched in March 2010, has been that changes to the current working time rules are urgently needed. There is also a high degree of consensus that EU working time rules should allow greater flexibility for workers’ and employers’ representatives to negotiate on the details of implementation at the appropriate level.
