OPINION that Directive 93/104 art.5 and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union art.31 must be interpreted not as requiring the weekly rest period to be granted at the latest on the seventh day following six consecutive working days, but as requiring such a period to be granted within each seven-day period.
