Keller-Sutter has to convince the FDP still

Expected to be in may, limiting the initiative of the SVP in front of people, which requires the termination of the free movement of persons and, therefore, the bilateral agreements with the EU at risk. The Federal Council wants to bring, therefore, to March the new subsistence bridging performance for older steered through Parliament. The group of the SC-50 will not contribute as in the case of the mass immigration initiative of the SVP is adopted Initiative.

On the next Thursday, the Council of States decides as the first chamber via the template. However, even though the FDP has initiated a Federal councillor Karin Keller-Sutter of the social protection together with the unions and with the involvement of the employer, the project is under the bourgeois state councillors controversial. For a majority in the Council of States, in addition to the secured 14 votes from the SP, and the Green for at least 10 Civil for a majority in the small chamber.

For the FDP councillor Josef Dittli is the output in the Council of States are open. In the FDP group of the template next week will give to talk about. It is not inconceivable that a majority of the 12 FDP-say representatives against the bill, says Dittli.

A concession to the Left

the SVP is rejected, the bridging pension anyway, and also in the CVP there are opponents. As Peter Hegglin and Brigitte Häberli-Koller (both CVP) with the SVP stands councils Alex Kuprecht and Hannes Germann enter a request. The four do not want the Council of States dealt with the template, but sunk.

The FDP in the face of the Bridging benefit, which is based on the System of supplementary benefits (EL), generally positive, says councillor Ruedi Noser. However, you can see "many points are critical." The FDP calls for a minimum age of 62 years for the eligibility, the Federal Council wants to grant benefits starting at 60.

especially from Keller-Sutter is to be expected that she's talking about her former councillor colleagues to the Conscience.

in Addition, many in the FDP, the Bridging benefit as a concession to the trade unions, to engage in the voting campaign against the SVP's Initiative and their opposition to the framework agreement with the EU to give up. As, however, in the case of the Left, no willingness to compromise on the framework agreement is a risk, asked some in the FDP, whether the concession lohne, says a councillor.

a Lot will depend on the persuasiveness of the two FDP members of the group meeting on Tuesday, says Dittli. Especially from Keller-Sutter is to be expected that she's talking about her former councillor colleagues to the Conscience. Dittli itself to agree to the template. He was able to prevail in the pre-Advisory social Commission some tightening. This includes the obligation of the recipients to continue to strive to a point. In addition, the services must be taxed, in contrast to EL. Dittli could, however, introduce further adjustments to the Federal Council template.

"It should not be due to the CVP, if the Bridging benefit in the Council of States is not a majority."Erich Ettlin, a supporter of the template

As is so often the case with social templates is likely to depend, in the Council of States the next Thursday of the CVP, if the template receives a clear majority or whether it will be for the Federal Council to the nail-biter. Erich Ettlin, a proponent of the template, assumes that the majority of the 13 CVP-Ständeräte will agree, despite some reservations. "It should not be due to the CVP, if the Bridging benefit in the Council of States is not a majority." The fact that in all of the groups many of the newly Elected sit, makes the output unwägbarer. Is Berset represent the template in the councils of the social Minister, Alain.

Older workers more attractive

to make An enemy of the bridging performance CVP-Ständerat Hegglin is. He wanted to introduce a new social insurance, he says. The Affected should be able to return to the labour market. Could be enhanced for older workers, for example, the social insurance contributions or in a be taken at the beginning of the time of the wage by the state. This will make the employment of older workers more attractive. Hegglin sees the Bridging benefit as the wrong Signal in a time in which the shortage of skilled workers exacerbated by the Retirement of the baby boomers and the previous Social funded work.

The Federal Council estimates that the initial expenditure to 30 million francs a year.

The Bridging benefit is based on the System of supplementary benefits, and to spare the older the controlled the speed on the Department of social services. A single person receives in accordance with the proposals of the Federal Council for a maximum of 58350 francs in the year. The effective height is calculated cost of the unsecured life, and the amount for the basic needs of some 2,000 Swiss francs per month.

The Federal Council estimates that the initial expenditure to 30 million francs a year. In the introduction phase, every year about 4400 out are likely to have contributed to claim. The number of recipients will rise thereafter, so that by 2030, the financing will be around 230 million needed. Be financed the benefits from the Federal Treasury.
