Get ready for 'Work Your Proper Hours Day': Friday 27 February

Work Your Proper Hours Day (27 Feb 2015) is the day when the average person who does unpaid overtime finishes the unpaid days they do every year, and starts earning for themselves. We think that's a day worth celebrating.

Our survey of Unite housing branch members highlighted long hours and stress as major concerns for members.

It is an event that gets national publicity; why not put it in your diary and make it a talking point in your workplace?  Work your proper hours day will be a good opportunity for Unite reps to raise related issues in the workplace.

 

Over five million people at work in the UK regularly do unpaid overtime, giving their employers more than £28 billion of free work in 2013 alone. If you're one, why not take some time to reflect on how well (or badly) you're balancing your life? This is one day in the year to make the most of your own time. Take a proper lunchbreak and leave work on time to enjoy your Friday evening - You deserve it!
