Switzerland -Ser0no workers march successfully in favour of union consultation -May 15, 2012

Local employees of Merck Serono started a protest against the shutdown of their headquarter in Geneva. According to trade union Unia up to 1,500 jobs, including 250 long-term contract workers, are affected. A strike that was announced in case company officials were not willing to extend the timeframe for consultations with the union leadership was averted. The management has accepted a prolongation of the consultations with three weeks.
