Unions ask companies to let staff watch WCup games

Unions ask companies to let staff watch WCup games

Britain's trade unions are asking companies to let employees watch the World Cup at work to prevent them from faking sickness during England matches.
The Trade Union Council says companies should allow televisions in the workplace or introduce flexible working hours during the June 11-July 11 World Cup.
England's group matches against the United States and Algeria are scheduled to kickoff in the evening but its June 23 game with Slovenia starts at 1:30 p.m. (1430 GMT).
TUC general secretary Brendan Barber says banning employees from watching football would "run the risk of demotivating staff and losing hours through unauthorized sick days."
