The airline Swiss and the cabin union Kapers were able to agree on an austerity package. This will come into force in March 2021 and is initially limited to the end of 2023. Accordingly, the flight attendants of the Lufthansa subsidiary should receive an average of ten percent less wages.
After this agreement has expired, the currently valid collective agreement is to be continued until at least 2025. The cabin crew is the largest group in the Swiss workforce in terms of people. There are also various options for flight attendants to make voluntary exit from the company attractive. These include, for example, early retirement, but also partial retirement. The bottom line is that costs should be reduced by around ten percent.
