Havana, Feb 14 (EFE) Some 60 percent of Cuban workers shirk their job responsibilities, 46 percent of workers arrive late for work and 19 percent took more time than allowed for meals and breaks, a study said.
A Labour and Social Security Ministry monitoring study “showed that 60 percent of workers harmed the workday in one way or another,” the official Communist Party daily Granma reported.

Ministry specialists conducted a study of more than 2,000 state-owned companies and institutions in May and June of last year.

More than 26,622 violations were detected, according to the study which found that 46 percent of workers arrived late and 19 percent took more time than allowed for meals and breaks.

Some 10 percent of workers left before the scheduled end of the workday, five percent did other work while on the clock and four percent left without permission.

Granma said many supervisors did not impose the penalties required for these violations of work rules and tolerated “lack of labour discipline”.
