Negotiations between management and labour on Swisscom salaries for 2005 have now been concluded: total salary payouts are to be increased by 2 percent. The general increase amounts to 1.7 percent of the basic salary. This measure does not apply to salaries which are currently well above the going market rate. These will be increased generally by 0.9 percent.
The decision is subject to approval by the governing bodies of the staff associations. The increase applies to all employees subject to Swisscom's collective employment agreement. Some 14,000 people (around 12,600 FTEs) are covered by this agreement.
With a 40-hour working week, five weeks' annual leave and flexible working time models, Swisscom offers its staff attractive terms of employment.
