In Neuchâtel, around 600 employees from the health and social services demonstrated on Tuesday, one day before the parliamentary vote on the budget for higher wages. Among other things, they demanded a full adjustment of their wages to inflation.

Public sector employees demonstrate in Neuchâtel for adjusted wages.

In the courtyard of the castle, the demonstrators drew attention to their demands with songs, leaflets, requests to speak, whistles and bells. Employees of the Neuchâtel hospital network also expressed their dissatisfaction with the announced a week ago that hundreds of jobs would be cut over the next two years. The government received a delegation of demonstrators in the castle in the afternoon.

The concerns of employees in the semi-public sector are likely to be at least partially heard by the members of parliament. In the planned budget compromise, an increase of three million Swiss francs is planned for 2023 in order to enable wage development for institutions working in health and social care.
