Pledge for a work-free Sunday

The European Sunday Alliance calls on all it’s Members and Supporters to support the Campaign

 

“Pledge for a work-free Sunday and decent work ahead of the European elections 2014”

 

A work-free Sunday and decent working hours are of paramount importance for citizens and workers throughout Europe and are not necessarily in conflict with economic competitiveness.

Especially in the present time of socio-economic crisis, the adoption of legislation extending working hours to late evenings, nights, bank holidays and Sundays has direct consequences for the working conditions of employees and for small and medium sized enterprises. Competitiveness needs innovation, innovation needs creativity and creativity needs recreation!

Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”

New Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”


Confesercenti and Federstrade Roma e Provincia with the support of the Italian Bishops’ Conference have launched the Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”. They are supported by the members of the European Sunday Alliance Filcams-Cgil, Fisascat-Cisl, UILTuCS and by the Archbishop of Campobasso-Bojano, Mgr. Bregantini, as well as by many civil society organisations. Of particular interest is the fact that the campaign is supported by four Italian regions, namely: Piemont, Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Toscana!

 

The objective of the Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA” is to collect signatures for a law changing the current extent of liberalization of shop opening hours.

 

The European Sunday Alliance wishes every success for this campaign and calls on all its Italian members and supporters to support “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”!
