European Work-Time Network

The debate on working time is one of the most salient topics on work and politics across Europe today, and there is a growing movement that is pushing for a more just distribution of labour and leisure time. The European Work-Time Network coordinates organisations, and individuals from trade unions, social movements, science, politics or civil society organisations, around the subject of working time reduction and adaptation.

Today, the network gathers key actors such as the organisations and people that started and support working time reduction or 4 day week trials inside their countries including Iceland, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal.

Our mission

The Network’s main mission is to advocate for Work-Time Reduction policies as a means to achieve more sustainable forms of work production, more meaningful lives and jobs, and a fairer distribution of wealth. To fulfil this purpose we collect and share experiences and evidence from working time reduction policies, provide meeting spaces and exchanges, and encourage work-time reduction policy adoption across Europe.
