German union IG Metall backs four-day week to save jobs

Germany’s largest trade union, IG Metall, which represents 2.3M employees, proposed a move to a 4-day week to keep industrial jobs instead of scrapping them amid the pandemic, as they say companies had an interest in cutting hours rather than laying off staff. The union said the health and economic crisis has put some 300,000 jobs at risk in Germany’s metal and electrical industry.
