The EU framework agreement is as good as failed

Hans-Ulrich Bigler, Director of the Swiss trades Association, is outraged by the employers ' Association: "If he believes that he can create without any consultation with us the facts, then he's wrong," says Bigler. The dispute between the two business associations has sparked in the last week this proposal of the EU for a framework agreement. Employers Federation Director Valentin Vogt has indicated, without consultation with the trade Association to the framework contract with major gifts to the unions to save.

For Bigler is Vogts scamper a scandal. Because for him and his Artists is today, that the Federal Council is allowed to "sign a contract". The trade unions see it that way. The employer Association of the trade unions, now with an extension of the collective employment contracts and dismissal protection for more than 50-Year-old bait wants, Bigler thought to simply as "impenetrable". The price would be "much too high".

in the Meantime, Vogt back cancer, according to the Biglers criticism. "New measures, no question," he says. They wanted to only talk to the unions about whether the framework agreement could not be implemented as it is.

politicians call for new negotiations, the EU does not want to

After the dispute among the representatives of the business, it is clear that the present framework agreement is already as good as failed. Because of the attempt of the employers to win the trade unions with the new wage protection measures for the contract, is blown cancers Back with Vogts. The trade unions and the trade Association will stay with your no. The SVP is anyway opposed to the principle of the contract.

the Plan of the Federal Council, with the consultation of a majority for the agreement process, has become a Farce, has also been in informal discussions between the social partners and political party representatives on the sidelines of the Session clear. It was agreed that the Federal Council must, at the latest, inform the next summer the EU, that there is a need, despite the previous refusal of Brussels for new negotiations. This agreement is not to save.

So Nationalrat Karl Vogler, a member of the CVP group, says: "Talking is always good. However, it is now clear that the Federal Council must finally negotiate with the EU a new Treaty." The softening of the accompanying measures against wage dumping was problematic.

Even further, the SP national councillor from Zurich Jacqueline Badran: There is no reason to shake the protection of Wages and the power game of the EU to give in: "The EU must accept that we have a direct democratic System." Then the Swiss diplomats would have to put up with the EU officials to the table. Also for commercial-in-chief Bigler, there is only one: "to continue to negotiate." And SP President Levrat comes to the conclusion: "The consultation exercise could cancel."

in the Meantime, obviously, in the employer evaluation Association. Vogt now speaks of a "counter-offer to the EU, the policy and the social partners need to develop" and one pivots so that the line of the renegotiation.

As is now drawn already, all parties and associations of a long-term scenario: In the summer, the Federal Council in Brussels to inform you that you could not initial the Treaty para, you can see approaches to new negotiations. In the meantime, the internal political Europe should be adjusted for the front in Switzerland, by the SVP Initiative will be done to the termination of the free movement of persons. By 2020, you could start with the EU in the new serious negotiations.
