SGB ​​demands automatic cost-of-living compensation

Unions recognize wage increases for this year in many sectors. However, they are still demanding real wage increases, automatic cost-of-living adjustments and at least CHF 5,000 a month for professionals with an apprenticeship.

The economic prospects have improved somewhat after two years of the corona pandemic, according to a statement with regard to the annual media conference of the Swiss Trade Union Confederation (SBG) on Monday.

The wage negotiations have shown that although the employers have increased prices, they have budgeted for wages on a petty scale. Purchasing power must keep up with production worldwide, however, otherwise there will be no demand, warns the trade union federation. In most countries, however, wages have lagged behind inflation, according to the SGB.
