Switzerland - Collective agreement at Coop - October 31, 2017

The collective agreement that the trade unions settled with the retailer Coop leads to some interesting new provisions. Notably in the area of the promotion of a good work-life balance the improvements are important: maternity leave increase to 16 weeks paid leave, parental leave for fathers increases from 1 to 3 weeks, and additional child care provisions are introduced. The minimum wage varies from a basic 3900 Swiss Francs (3355 euro) to 4100 Swiss Francs (3527 euro) for skilled workers that have followed three years of vocational training.
