Switzerland -Modest collective agreement for federal employees -November 13, 2013

Despite gloomy economic forecasts, federal employees will receive a 0.7% wage increase. Trade unions PVB, VPOD, Garanto and PVfedpol had originally demanded a 1% increase, whereas the government wanted to increase salaries by no more than 0.5%. The trade unions stress that while the 0.7% is a modest increase, it was the best possible result in the current circumstances that still guarantees a small hike for the 50% of federal employees who have already reached the end of their pay scale.
