SWISS responds to Swiss Pilots’ proposed cost economies

4 July 2003

SWISS received a letter today (Friday, July 4) from the Swiss Pilots union in which the union proposes a package of cost economies offering total savings of CHF 45 million.

SWISS Executive Management explained at its media conference on June 24 that its negotiations with its unions would have to produce a result by July 15. SWISS thus remains in intensive discussions with both the Swiss Pilots and the Aeropers unions.

The proposal submitted by Swiss Pilots today will be carefully considered and incorporated into these ongoing discussions. SWISS will refrain from commenting on the content of this proposal before these negotiations have been concluded.

Note to editors:
SWISS will not be commenting further on this media release.
