Civil servants to call for four-day working week

    The Association of Higher Civil and Public Servants (AHCPS) will hear calls today for staff in Government departments to be moved to a four-day working week.

    The AHCPS will meet in Dublin for its annual delegate conference this afternoon and will debate a number of motions on the four-day week.

    Delegates will ask the union to support the Irish Congress of Trade Union's campaign for a four-day week and to seek the introduction of 'Work Condensing Programmes' in all Government departments and offices.


    What do you reckon? Could our famously efficient civil servants cram their many duties into 4 days instead of 5?
