As part of its reorganization plans, Volkswagen is considering increasing its employees' work hours. Reuters reports that management has requested the VW work council to consider gradually phasing back the 35-hour work week among its members. Currently employees work a standard 28.8-hour work week.

The council has notified its members of the request. However, Bernd Osterloh, who leads the council, said such an increase would not be done without some form of compensation and would immediately reject the idea if it resulted in job loss.
