Portugal - Return of 35-hour week - June 30, 2016

The president of the country has approved the law re-establishing a 35-hour week for the state sector workers, which was approved in parliament at the beginning of June. The law that brings back a 35-hour week, after the previous government put it up to 40 hours on troika suggestion, was passed by all the left-wing parties and rejected by the two centre-right parties which were in the coalition government that reintroduced the 40-hour week.
