Public sector pensions?

Apologies if this has been asked and answered before - I did search but found no information on this particular topic.

I was wondering if public sector pensions in Switzerland are funded by contributions during employment or through general taxation, as is mostly the case in the UK as well as other countries. As in, should the tax revenue somehow disappear in the UK, the reality is that most public sector pensions could not be paid, as there are no "funds" or "savings" per se, they rely on the tax payer (along with state borrowing) to fund the ongoing payments.

By "public sector" I specifically mean non-private, i.e. administration (e.g. parliament), general bureaucracy, police etc.
