May 1 – Higher pay. Higher pensions. Equality now!
SEV-GATA General Meeting on 20 June in Zurich

Dear Colleagues

This year's Labour Day is happening at a fairly loaded time:

  • Various conflicts are escalating in war.
  • Our industries have largely recovered from Covid.
  • Now, prices are rising at a rate we haven't seen in decades.
  • The job market has dried up and employers are desperately looking for employees.
  • After having increased the retirement age for women, Parliament has also decided on an unacceptable pension fund reform.

Therefore, people are gathering for Labour Day demonstrations using the motto:

May 1 – Higher pay. Higher pensions. Equality now!

You can find the interactive map with all events on 1 May 2023 at – the trade unions are going to be at the forefront of these events, of course!

SEV-GATA General Meeting on 20 June in Zurich

For this year's general meeting (GM), we have again chosen an exciting topic:

On 20 June 2023, 5.30 pm, the SEV-GATA general meeting will take place at Zurich airport. A representative of the airport will give a speech about the runway extension. After discussing our usual agenda items, we will enjoy an aperitif together, exchange ideas and discuss the current situation.
All members will soon receive an invitation by post.

Social progress, justice, human rights, fair wages, and pensions that allow for a dignified life are not always a reality – not even in Switzerland. By being a member, you live solidarity and you can be sure we represent your interests. Bring your colleagues to SEV-GATA! By joining us, they will become part of a worldwide movement and you will receive a premium of 50 Francs. Join now at SEV-GATA, part of the largest union of transport workers – in Switzerland, but also in Europe (ETF) and worldwide (ITF)!

Kind regards

Philipp Hadorn, President

SEV-GATA, your union in the aviation industry!
