European Sunday Law

On 20 June,  some 65 civil society organisations, trade unions and Churches launched the European Sunday Alliance at an event held in the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in Brussels. In their Founding Statement “Together for decent working hours” the signatories commit to safeguard and promote work-free Sundays and decent working hours throughout Europe. The launch was part of an expert conference on the impact of Sunday work on the health, safety and social integration of workers.


The European Sunday Alliance,

  • Supports the protection of health and safety of workers and their right to a limit on maximum working hours and of a weekly rest period, including, in principle Sunday
  • Supports the respect for collective agreements covering work organisation, which are essential to the social contract of a modern European society
  • Warns against the growing economic pressure which is undermining national regulations regarding working conditions
  • Commits itself to safeguard and promote work-free Sunday and decent working hours
  • Urges the European Institutions to safeguard Sunday, in principle, as the common weekly rest day in the EU
  • Urges the EU to better ensure that EU legislation and internal market rules guarantee the central place of health and safety, work- and life-balance and social cohesion by launching relevant initiatives to ensure work-free Sundays and decent working hours
  • Calls on the Governments of the Member States to take their responsibility for improving, implementing and enforcing existing legislation and practices and respecting collective agreements

I was born into a non Adventist home, well that is an understatement really. My father was and still is a heavily practicing Satanist and as such, myself being a female, made me a target for ridicule and I was most certainly placed way below my brothers in the family......Tamara's Testimony
