The General Conference of the International Labour Organisation,
Having been convened at Geneva by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office, and having met in its Twenty-fifth Session on 8 June 1939, and
Having decided upon the adoption of certain proposals with regard to rest periods for professional drivers of private vehicles, which is included in the fourth item on the agenda of the Session, and
Having determined that these proposals shall take the form of a Recommendation,
adopts this twenty-eighth day of June of the year one thousand nine hundred thirty-nine, the following Recommendation, which may be cited as the Rest Periods (Private Chauffeurs) Recommendation, 1939:
Whereas the Hours of Work and Rest Periods (Road Transport) Convention, 1939, authorises the competent authority in each country to exempt from the application of the Convention persons who drive private vehicles used solely for personal services;
Whereas the exercise by the competent authority of this power of this power of exemption should not result in depriving professional drivers of private vehicles of the rest periods to which they are no less entitled than the persons who may not be exempted from the application of the Convention; and
Whereas, for reasons of road safety, it is necessary to apply provisions relating to rest periods to professional drivers of private vehicles;
Recommends each Member of the International Labour Organisation to draw up regulations applicable to professional drivers of private vehicles used solely for personal services providing for the observance of minimum daily and weekly rest periods.
