Company Bosses Are Leaving You Behind,
But Your Union SEV-GATA Has Your Back!

Dear Colleagues

Swiss CEO Dieter Vranckx takes off his hat after only three years. Markus Binkert, Chief Financial Officer, is also leaving the company. In our press release on 24 February, SEV-GATA draws an ambiguous conclusion to Vranckx's performance. The shock of the unnecessary mass layoffs during the pandemic, which was evidently based on grave miscalculations, is still lingering in our bones. Many colleagues ended up in a precarious situation, paired with bitter disappointment. The layoffs resulted in staff shortages during the "ramp up" that remain challenging in various departments.

Swissport Zurich responded to our petition stating that our request for fair wage increases as of 1 January 2024 can only be examined after the financial result of 2023 is confirmed. We will stay on course!
