Dear colleagues

Since 1 March, 2022, Swiss has been trying to get back to "normal". Although the tragic situation in Ukraine threatens to cause further turbulence in aviation, we are generally happy about the "new normal". However, the question whether the implementation of a "Crisis CLA" is reasonably and legally acceptable remains unanswered. We are in the process of clarifying this question  (see media release on 13 March 2022).

In Zurich, our union secretaries Regula Pauli and Sheila Belometti distributed SEV-GATA cookies to thank colleagues for their commitment to facing the challenges brought on by the pandemic.

Swissport Zurich: CLA Negotiations 2022/23
A negotiation plan has been agreed upon in a first meeting with the company. It is based on the needs expressed by affected colleagues in our survey. Regula Pauli will keep our members at Swissport Zurich informed on a regular basis during the negotiations, which will begin shortly.

Swissport Geneva / Vebego Geneva: CLA Signed
After lengthy negotiations, the CLA with Swissport Geneva came into effect on 1 March 2022. The one with Vebego Geneva is to follow on 1 April 2022. The colleagues concerned were informed in detail by our local trade union secretary, Pablo Guarino.

On 17May 2022 at 5.30 pm, the SEV-GATA General Assembly (GM) 2022 will take place in the Flight Experience Restaurant RUNWAY 34 in Glattbrugg.
After discussing the regular agenda items in the Aviator Lounge, we will enjoy an "apéro riche" in the hangar area together. This will be a great opportunity to share thoughts and opinions on the current situation.
All members will soon receive an invitation by post. New members can download the invitation and register in due time after having sent us their declaration of membership. Registration deadline: 8 May, 2022 to Enable JavaScript to view protected content.
