This is good news, but in many industries/companies, a hard negotiation will have to take place with unions to determine "post 35h" rules, etc. Whilst this will allow companies to uncap the number of hours being worked, all the benefits (additional paid vacation, etc.) will still remain, at least from what I have understood.

Better than keeping the terms of the law in full effect though.

yeah, I know. Changing the law doesn't do much to undo the labor agreements that are industrywide, and that's going to be a tough fight. Nonetheless, this is a first start and a very important step.
