On 22 November at AutoEuropa, Volkswagen’s automotive assembly plant, located in the city of Palmela, near Lisbon, Portugal, management at the German automaker together with the Workers Commission signed a pre-agreement on working time. In it working time is to be adapted in two stages so that expected needs of peaks in business activity can be met. This is a compromise agreement between the parties. First, it maintains the weekly two consecutive rest days and then it will introduce continuous seven days per week working from the end of August 2018. The plant’s 5,000 workers will vote on the agreement on 29 November, which could put an end to the current dispute over working time.
