Swiss Post, the trade union syndicom and the staff association transfair have been negotiating a new Swiss Post CEC over the past eighteen months. The decision-making committees of the three social partners have now approved the result of the negotiations. As of 1 January 2016, each of the three subsidiaries, Post CH Ltd, PostBus Switzerland Ltd and PostFinance Ltd, will receive a new CEC, with their main points regulated in an overarching umbrella CEC.
Fair working conditions also ensured with the new CEC
Upon signing the contracts, the three social partners declared themselves satisfied with the result. The agreement takes both the needs of the company and the interests of staff into consideration. From the social partners’ standpoint, the Swiss Post remains a reliable employer with fair working conditions under the new contracts.
Salary measures for 2016
Salary measures for 2016 were also determined as part of the CEC negotiations. The social partners have agreed to use 0.6 percent of the total salary sum for individual, performance-related salary measures for Post CH Ltd and PostFinance Ltd. Moreover, all employees will receive a one-off payment of 400 francs. At PostBus Switzerland Ltd, 0.4 percent of the total salary sum will be used for individual, performance-based salary measures.
Further negotiations pending
The negotiations over employment conditions for various other Swiss Post subsidiaries will begin in the second half of the year. The collective employment contracts for Swiss Post Solutions Ltd, Presto Presse-Vertriebs AG and PostLogistics Ltd were already negotiated at an earlier stage. All of the negotiations were necessary due to the new postal legislation which came into effect at the end of 2012.
