Press Release – Swiss Ground Staff: Record Profits, But Hardly Any Compensation for Inflation?

Swiss has made an excellent recovery and expects a record result at the end of the year. In spite of that, Swiss management breaks off wage negotiations with the social partners (SEV-GATA, VPOD and Association of Commercial Employees) and unilaterally announces wage measures that do not even cover inflation. The SEV-GATA ground staff union demands that employees be granted fair participation in the company's success and that negotiations be resumed accordingly.

Shameless gap: Swiss profits are rising to record highs, but wages are not supposed to follow. Swiss management does not even want to grant staff a full general inflation adjustment. Photo: Swiss
