To ask the Scottish Government whether it will support public sector employers to pilot a four-day working week.


We are committed to supporting public sector employers in improving wellbeing policies for employees, including exploring the benefits of being part of the four-day working week pilot.

The 2022-23 public sector pay policy introduces the option for employers, in discussion with trade unions, to take a multi-year, reform approach to pay. Employers pursuing this option can explore piloting a four day working week.

More detail regarding four day week pilots in the public sector will be set out in due course.
