Berne, 17 December 2008
Swisscom has reached an agreement with the unions: salaries will be increased by 3.2 per cent with effect from the beginning of 2009. The general increase is 3.0 percent of the basic salary. This increase will not apply to salaries which are well above the market rate.
Employees paid salaries in excess of the going market rate for their function will receive an uninsured one-off payment of CHF 1,100 (FTEs). This will reduce salary differentials compared with the market.
The salary deal applies to all 14,500 employees subject to Swisscom's collective employment agreement (around 13,500 FTEs).
