Switzerland -Care workers demand sector wide collective agreement -May 12, 2015

Health care workers demand a sector-wide collective agreement.

Health care workers have published a manifesto demanding a sector-wide collective agreement. The workers say the care sector is expanding, but also become increasingly impersonal. While services delivered are deteriorating, executives in some firms are making profits. The workers want to undercut competition on working conditions by a sector-wide collective agreement.
