A large Russian company announced the possible transition to 4-day work week
GAZ Group may switch to 4-day work week. The company has already warned its employees about this. While this measure is temporary, its effect may last from October 21 to April 20.
As the Kommersant, the abolition of the five-day period will entail a reduction in employee wages. The company explains this with sanctions restrictions that led to problems with the supply of imported spare parts and reduced production. At the same time, the concern assures that the notification is a preventive measure; there will be no reduction in stabilizing the situation.
Earlier, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev set the task before the Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation to conduct a study of the impact of the 4-day working week on the economy and social sphere. The possibility of reductions is associated with technological progress. At the same time, some experts spoke about the need to maintain wages in the event of a five-day reduction.
