Switzerland -Unions take right to strike issue to ILO -April 10, 2013

Trade unions have filed a complaint with the ILO for infringement of their right to strike. In the end of 2012, workers of the Neunberger hospital went on strike when it became clear that the hospital’s new owner intended to repudiate the collective agreement and worsen working conditions. The hospital then sacked the workers on strike, who took their employer to court for illegally dismissing them. However, after Swiss courts have upheld the dismissals, the unions now take the case to the ILO.
