Happy Birthday SEV-GATA

In March 2024, the aviation ground staff union will celebrate its 20th anniversary as SEV-GATA.

After being founded in Basel in July 2000 by dedicated ground staff employees after the grounding of Swissair, GATA became the largest ground staff union in Switzerland. After a three-year cooperation with SEV for the professional negotiation of the first CLA with Swiss, GATA requested to be integrated into SEV via a vote. Since March 2004, the ground staff union has been a semi-autonomous sub-organization of SEV, the largest transport union in Switzerland, and has operated under the name SEV-GATA. Since then, it has continued its tireless commitment to the ground staff of various aviation companies.
