Switzerland -Strike action of two groups brings improvements -December 21, 2011

Laboratory workers and cleaners have both managed to secure improved pay following separate strike action against their employer, the Geneva University Hospital (HUG). Both groups of workers felt that they had lost out when pay structures had been introduced or revised in the past and both will now have better opportunities to move up the pay structure. A joint committee will also look at staffing and career development issues for both groups of workers. Employers have also withdrawn their threats of disciplinary action against striking activists (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 November 2011).
