The fight for the pension fund reform is on the home straight. The competent Council of States commission is putting a new model on the table. According to this, 20 years of age should be able to enjoy a lifelong, graduated pension supplement of a maximum of CHF 200 per month. But this model is also controversial. A heated debate is scheduled in the Council of States for the summer session.

Blick: Mr. Maillard, the Social Committee of the Council of States is putting a new compensation solution on the table. Are you going with this?
Pierre Yves Maillard: We worked out the social partner compromise with the employers’ association and made painful concessions in the process. The bourgeoisie swept this compromise off the table. This gives us the freedom to bring other issues into the debate. But one thing is certain: we will not support a worse solution.
