Our work.

Social partnership / CEA

Employees Switzerland is the competent and reliable cross-branch social partner of the large export industries MEM and chemistry/pharmaceuticals, the service industry and the ancillary construction trade.


We conclude collective employment agreements (CEA) and company agreements with employer associations and companies. This enables industry- and company-specific, tailor-made solutions that go beyond the legal requirements. In contrast to the law, the social partners can react flexibly to changing conditions at any time. Employees Switzerland stands for a fair and transparent social partnership, with a focus on pragmatic and cooperative solutions.
We are committed to:


  • strengthening the employability of the participants in the labor market
  • the promotion of continuous training for all
  • better compatibility of work and family life
  • use of the workforce to its full potential (young people, women, employees with long experiences)
