12 or 13 month salary?

Is it "normal" in Switzerland to have a 13 payment contract? Or it really depends on the company?

My last job in Switzerland was a 13 month one

I have been offered a new job in a Luzern, with a 12 month salary payment

-

What's up with that? Can I challenge it?

You could challenge it, but what are you hoping to achieve? You'll be offered exactly the same annual wage, but divided into 13 packets instead of 12.

If the salary is too low, negotiate a better annual salary.
