HesaMag 5: Paying the price for putting in the hours

The latest issue of HesaMag carries an item on working time and its impact on workers’ health. Aside from the revision of the Working Time directive, which the social partners are currently trying to get back on track, we look at the trend towards increasingly flexible working times and its repercussions on health as well as social and family life. While no category of workers is immune, the least skilled and women seem to be hardest hit. You can also read an interview in this issue with Judith Kirton, the new ETUC confederal secretary with responsibility for health and safety at work.
