Abstract Working paper and report for the Third Tripartite Technical Meeting for the Printing and Allied Trades, Geneva, 1990. Chapter 1 examines the legal protection obtained by legislative and contractual means for workers in the printing and allied trades by tracing the development of major elements of working time - normal hours of work, overime, paid annual and public holidays. Chapter 2 deals with the arrangement of working time (shift work, night work and part-time work). Chapter 3 is devoted to work organisation and content, reviewing them in the light of the technological changes that have characterised the printing and allied trades in the last 10yrs. The report concludes with a summary and a list of suggested points for discussion.
