The Federation Council called the premature idea of reducing the working week
Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy Valery Ryazansky, in an interview with RT, commented on the proposal of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FNPR) to transfer Russians to a four-day working week.
“This is a tempting horizon, but it can only be achieved with very high productivity, high wages. To say that this is a close reality is very premature, ”Ryazansky noted.
The senator added that the mode of work in private sector enterprises is determined, as a rule, by the leaders themselves.
“A seriously socially oriented leader always does this with the participation of the labor collective or trade union. There you can define any work schedules: sliding, remote, interchangeable. The main thing, in the end, is that this would suit both the workers themselves and the employers, and, in particular, so that wages do not suffer. It’s just that today it’s too early to talk about this (proposal. - RT ), ”Ryazansky concluded.
Earlier, the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FNPR) proposed transferring the Russians to a four-day working week.
It is assumed that the transition should be carried out with the same wage.
According to Elena Kosakovskaya, deputy head of the department of social and labor relations and social partnership of the apparatus of the FNPR, all the European countries that are in the top ten in terms of the shortest working hours are at a high level of socio-economic development.
