Confederation puts forward national minimum wage proposal

The SGB/USS trade union confederation has drafted a policy calling for a national minimum wage that it will put to delegates at a meeting on 17 May. The confederation argues that too many workers are not covered by collective agreements. Even though collective agreements can be extended, there are some sectors without collective agreements at all and so this would still leave many workers without pay protection. The union wants a national minimum wage of CHFR 22 (€15) an hour, with the Cantons (regional governments) having the right to implement higher minimum wages if they want to.
