New Patterns for Working Time; International Conference. (Paris, September 26-29, 1972). Final Report.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
The conference was arranged by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Manpower and Social Affairs Directorate to enable representatives of employers' associations, labor unions, senior civil servants and academics from member OECD countries to exchange views on more flexible arrangements of working time. The document presents a review of reports made to the conference and of the discussions which followed. The length of time worked has decreased over the past ten years. It therefore becomes increasingly necessary to consider life as a whole, rather than work and leisure separately. Freedom of choice as to the distribution of activities over the course of time is subject to constraints but they are not all inevitable. Trends are seen toward increasing flexibility in respect to total working time, arrangement of working time within the work day or work period, development of part time work, and additional training after the end of fulltime schooling.
