Swiss voters are likely to give themselves two weeks of extra holidays when they go to the polls for a referendum this March, a new survey shows.

Re: Swiss want six holiday weeks: survey

To be quite honest most people would like more than that, ultimately they would have to take a pay cut.

Re: Swiss want six holiday weeks: survey

I work for a company whose holiday entitlement is "minimum as required by Swiss law", so bring it on!

Adrian... Do we work in the same company?

If it depended on the boss, I wouldn't even get those minimum days...

Re: Swiss want six holiday weeks: survey

Here, I've always had 5 weeks of vacation, plus 14 public holidays, except when I lived in Zurich and also got all the days between Christmas and New Years as well!

Re: Swiss want six holiday weeks: survey

I had lunch today with my old department in Swisscom. They get 25 days vacation plus the statuary public holidays. Now my ex-boss has 25 days normal vacation this year, plus 84 days accumulated from previous years! He has been told to use it or lose it this year. I told him he needs to work a 3 day week, he quickly replied, "I still can't use it all up this year!"
