17 Irish companies are to take part in a programme aimed at introducing a shorter working week.

A four-day working week could become a reality in years to come.

The Oireachtas Committee on Enterprise, Trade and Employment is being told today that a number of Irish employers are signed up to test the proposal next year.

Four-day working weeks will also be trialed in Canada, New Zealand and parts of the USA.

Kevin Callinan of the trade union Forsa, says the initiative will deliver better outcomes in the work place but only if all employers sign up for it.
