Hundreds of Zurich airport workers protest over wages

Members of the VPOD public services workers union display placards during a demonstration in front of Zurich Airport

ZURICH (Reuters) – Hundreds of workers demonstrated at Zurich’s airport on Friday to protest against wage cuts amid the coronavirus-linked travel slump.

The VPOD public-sector workers union and other labour groups called the action to demand employers negotiate fairly at a time when public money is helping to prop up hard-hit airlines and associated businesses.

The aviation sector employs around 190,000 people in Switzerland, VPOD says.
