Geneva canton may face further strike action

Switzerland Switzerland
The SSP/VPOD public service union is one of a number of unions that have taken strike action against cuts proposed by the government of the Geneva canton (region). The unions are protesting against planned cuts that would see pay reduced by 5% over the next three years, a freeze on recruitment, an increase in the working week from 40 to 42 hours and 1800 job cuts. The unions argue that nothing like this has been seen since the 1930s. The initial strike action was suspended in the expectation of revised proposals from the regional government but it has yet to come up with any alternatives further strikes are likely from the beginning of December.
