Five-day working week mooted

Both employers and employees of the private sector have agreed on a five-day working week, said Labour Affairs and Manpower Minister Athauda Seneviratne.

This was disclosed at the special meeting of National Labour Advisory Committee held at the Labour Ministry recently.

Minister said that this proposal is an appropriate move and would assist the Government efforts to tackle problems stemming from the global economic crisis.

Both parties have basically agreed to the proposal. The final decision will be taken soon, the Minister said.

Seneviratne added that a 5 day week would greatly help cutting down on operational and labour costs.
