The Swiss government has proposed cuts in public spending that would deteriorate the quality of services and cut 20.000 jobs. The Swiss unions including EPSU member VPOD are organising a national day of action against these brutal attacks on public service quality. The Swiss unions are also using this to start a campaign to promote high quality public servics.
It is essential to note that the proposals were actually voted down but the government continues to promote them. The well-off will receive major benefits and tax cuts. EPSU has sent a message of solidarity.
