Christian Democrats Propose New Sunday Closing
Just a few months after legislation restricting retailers from opening on Sundays in Hungary was repealed, with retail sales experiencing a pickup since, junior governing partner the Christian Democratic Peopleʼs Party (KDNP) is said to be proposing to reintroduce Sunday closing two days a month, according to reports.

Csaba Bubenkó, chairman of the Independent Union of Retail Workers, told government-friendly daily newspaper Magyar Idők that the amendment could be brought before Parliament by December at the latest.

According to the daily, under the changes two Sundays a month should be given to workers in the retail sector as days off, while no retail worker should work more than eight hours on a Sunday.
