There will probably be a referendum.
The last pension reform referendum (3rd time 2 decades), was September 2017. This included;

- raising the retirement age of women to 65
- increasing the OASI retirement pension by CHF 70 a month
- reducing the minimum conversion rate from 6.8 to 6%

These would have been paid for by increasing VAT. Voter turnout was 46% and the initiative was rejected with 53% against.

Although Zurich, Basel and Ticino voted in favour, less than 40% voted in favour in GVA, AZ, NW and SZ.

Equality is in the hands of direct democracy.
