people and is based in an industrial park near Swindon, England. The regular working
week for production staff is 39 hours, compared with a maximum of 37 hours in other,
similar companies on the estate. The union would like to negotiate a reduction in
working hours to 37, without any reduction in basic salary. They realise that in return for
this they will probably have to increase productivity. The management is happy to
consider a reduction in hours if it can win greater productivity and flexibility in working
time. (It often needs to ask staff to do overtime for special orders.)
