Swiss International Air Lines AG Key Developments

Swiss International Air Lines AG and Kapers Enter into Labour Agreement

The SWISS Management Board and the kapers association of the company's cabin crew staff have reached agreement on the broad parameters for a new Collective Labour Agreement. The new accord should supersede those presently in effect for the company's Zurich-based cabin personnel from 1 May 2015. The agreement reached between the company Management Board and kapers follows previous recent such accords for the company's ground and cockpit personnel. The new Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) for cabin personnel should enter into effect on 1 May 2015, superseding three current CLAs for the company's permanent and temporary Zurich-based cabin crew staff dating from 2009. The parties have further agreed that the new accord should be of five years' duration. In content terms, the new CLA foresees the gradual introduction of a 13th monthly salary and an easing of cabin crew members' working hours on European flights. It will also see an increase in the ordinary retirement age for cabin personnel from the present 58 to 60, flanked by a series of flexible retirement options and enhanced protection from dismissal for long-serving cabin crew staff. To safeguard the company's profitability and competitive credentials, the new CLA will also entail the adoption of new expenses provisions, along with a redesign of the current annual salary increments within the salary system. The new CLA also includes a commitment from SWISS to transfer to it the individual contracts of employment concluded in the meantime for Zurich-based cabin crew members, and - in a second step - for kapers to become the company's social partner for its Geneva-based cabin staff, too. The details of the new cabin CLA will be elaborated over the next few weeks. The proposed new accord will then need to be approved by both the kapers membership and the company Board of Directors.
