This chapter concerns the renegotiation of the 1993 Working Time Directive which sets out a 48-hour limit to an employee’s working week, as well as requirements for rest and annual leave. The directive contains the opt-out whereby employees would be allowed to work in excess of the 48-hour week. It also contained a clause whereby the opt-out was to be reviewed after a ten year period paving the way for the 2004 negotiations. The chapter analyses the negotiations and pays attention to the positions and contribution of the CEE states during the negotiations.
