Citizen’s Initiative in Switzerland - a huge Setback for Immigrants and Trade Unions
On 9 February a narrow majority of Swiss voters voted in favour of an initiative by the Swiss People's Party (SVP) calling for the re-introduction of quotas for immigrants from the EU. This decision is a huge setback for immigrants to Switzerland, for trade unions and for all progressive forces, and leads Switzerland unavoidably up a blind alley. See the following declaration by Paul Rechsteiner, the President of the Swiss Federation of Trade Unions SGB, and Renzo Ambrosetti , co-President of UNIA, affiliated to the EFBWW (EN, DE, FR).
