Holidays could be trade-off for keeping working time opt-out

Workers
in the UK could get longer holidays as a result of government attempts to
retain the Working Time Directive opt-out.

Currently,
UK workers can agree to work longer than the European Union limit of 48 hours
per week, but this option could be lost as the EU revamps rules.

But
according to a report in The Times, the Government may propose longer holidays
for UK workers in return for being allowed to keep its exemption from the limit
on working hours.
