Cablecom adjusts its shift premium policy

    Zurich (ots) - Following talks with the Communication Union, Cablecom has decided to adjust its shift premium policy and to make retrospective payments until January 1, 2001. Cablecom's new policy reflects the recent changes to standard practice.

    According to a ruling of the Federal Court from December 5, 2005, night and weekend premiums are an integral part of the salary. In consequence, such premiums must be paid out during vacation times as well, provided that employment is on a regular and permanent basis. Following talks with the Communication Union and employee representatives, Cablecom has therefore adjusted its regulation for the payment of shift premiums with immediate effect. In addition, Cablecom has decided that the premiums will be paid to active employees retrospectively until January 1, 2001.

    "The ruling by the Federal Court from December 5, 2005 brings the up to now different interpretations of the law by the various cantons into line. I am very pleased that we have found a solution in our talks with the Communication Union and our employee representatives," comments Thomas Foery, Director Human Resources. Cablecom is in regular dialogue with both employee representatives and unions.
