In a bid to show their leadership and management skills some senior managers are spending time in the office undertaking unpaid overtime

Rob Holdsworth, senior campaigns officer at the Trades Union Congress (TUC), said that the uncertainty surrounding job security means that workers are unlikely to make a stand on the extra hours they are forced to work to deal with their workload.

He noted that it is not just lower level staff that are doing unpaid overtime, as higher up the food chain managers are staying late to complete their work.

"I think a lot of managers would appreciate a better work/life balance as well. Everyone should make sure to work their proper hours next Friday, by taking a proper lunch break or by leaving on time," he added.

The TUC has launched a light-hearted Work Your Proper Hours Day, which urges employees to work their exact hours on Friday and not to stay late.
