Switzerland - Women demonstrate over pension age and child care - June 21, 2010

The SSP-VPOD public services union backed the national demonstration on 14 June over childcare provision and proposals to increase the retirement age for women. The union has criticized the federal government for plans to cut back a scheme that has actually increased childcare places in recent years, although there is still a major shortage across the country. Once again, the union pointed at the backward position of Switzerland concerning child care (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 April 2010).
