Geneva. Finally, social progress is possible for airport tarmac workers

Ground handling at Geneva airport is a subcontracting industry. This can lead to difficult and poorly-regulated work conditions. These trades, which are a source of many cross-border workers, will see some improvements in social conditions on Wednesday, June 1. This is the day the mandatory standard contract, which was adopted by the CGAS (Geneva Community of Trade Union Action), enters into effect. It will ensure that all employees, no matter their fixed, temporary, or auxiliary status, have equal working conditions. To compensate for wage underbidding, minimum wages will be enacted. They will be indexed for inflation. These innovations include the minimum daily work time of three hours, five weeks of vacation and sickness benefits.
