New law ? two more weeks of unpaid holidays

Hi there,
Is it true that a new law was voted in Switzerland recently allowing employees to take an additional unpaid 2 weeks (in addition to their existing holiday allowance) ??
I heard that from a friends who said their company already implemented this new law from now
Any news, or feedback would be nice
Thanks

The only thing I found on Google was the possibility that some companies let you "buy" two extra weeks to add to your annual entitlement.

I think there was a vote a few years ago to increase holidays but it got knocked back.
