Advocate and voice of the employees

General Meeting

Employees Switzerland is the federation of approximately 60 employees’ associations in companies of the engineering, electrical and metal industries (MEM) as well as the chemical/pharmaceutical industries. Employees associations and their individual members as well as individuals (individual members, honorary members, individual retired members) are members of Employees Switzerland.


The employees’ associations elect the delegates of Employees Switzerland. The General Meeting defines the main positions and the small board is responsible for a speedy implementation. The members of the board (president, vice president, members) work in an honorary capacity and are elected by the General Meeting. The above mentioned individuals also have the right to vote at the GM.
