Employees in the UK are working longer hours than those in any other European Union country, according to the TUC.
Frances O'Grady, general secretary of the TUC, said: "Britain's long-hours culture is nothing to be proud of. It's robbing workers of a decent home life and time with their loved ones. Overwork, stress and exhaustion have become the new normal.
"It's time for a change. Other countries have shown that reducing working hours isn't only good for workers, it can boost productivity. As new technology changes our economy, the benefits should be shared by working people. That means shorter hours, more time with family and friends, and decent pay for everyone."
