    w/c

    What does 'w/c' mean in the following sentence?

    "Could we arrange a call w/c 28 June?"

    Many thanks.

    Week Commencing.

    w/c and w/e were used a lot in my previous job. w/e - week ending.

    So if someone wants to arrange a call w/c 28 June, then they wish to speak to you/visit you at some point during the week which starts on Monday 28th June.

    Thanks - I had no idea what that meant!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
