Switzerland - Union wants special coaching for older workers - April 30, 2017

The trade union federation Travail Suisse reiterated calls for additional measures to help unemployed older workers find a job. Travail Suisse said employees aged over 50 should benefit from special coaching offers and urged regional employment centres to increase efforts to encourage companies to offer jobs for older workers. Nearly 27% of unemployed workers over 50 need more than 12 months to find a job, according to Travail Suisse. Besides, the leading trade union federation SGB/USS has been calling for older workers to benefit from increased legal protection from dismissal at the workplace.
