After the pilots' union Aeropers rejected the latest offer from Swiss management, the signs are now pointing to a strike. A corresponding ballot was initiated among the members. In October 2022 the work could be stopped.

The employee representatives and Swiss have been negotiating a new general employment contract for some time. The latest offer from the management was rejected by the union as insufficient. The carrier responded to this in a media release downright snuffy.

Aeropers is now beginning preparations for a possible strike to increase pressure on the employer. In the most recent press release, he emphasized that the company would continue to be available for negotiations. If no agreement is reached beforehand, the unionized Swiss pilots could stop working in mid-October 2022.

"With their behavior, the management of Swiss leaves us no choice but to prepare further options. We do that by initiating the voting process for a walkout," said Aeropers union leader Thomas Steffen.

Specifically, the first date of the strike is October 17, 2022. The members will now vote on this measure. Should there be work stoppages, Swiss would be hit hard, since the autumn business is considered very important.
