Switzerland - Striking cleaners take protest to ISS offices - October 22, 2010

Striking workers are maintaining their protests against the ISS cleaning multinational that terminated the collective agreement covering employees at Geneva Airport. Earlier this month the strikers, supported by local trade unionists, protested outside the ISS offices in Zürich. Their union, VPÖD/SSP, criticised ISS for spending money on a legal action against a local Genevan community and trade union group that had called on international organisations based in the city, such as the International Labour Organisation, to terminate their contracts with the company (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 July-August and September 2010).
