Switzerland - Union formulates demands for bargaining season - September 30, 2016

Trade union confederation SGB/USS has formulated its demands for the next bargaining round. The trade union notes that the economic outlook is rather positive with an increase in export and no serious budgetary problems. In order to strengthen the purchase power, in a situation with low inflation (at a 0.5% rate), the demands vary from nominal amounts to a 1.5% wage increase combined with sickness allowances.
