Biogen Luterbach: New Jobs with lousy conditions

The working conditions in the cleaning department at Biogen's new production site in Luterbach are miserable. Workers from Enzler Reinigung tell of incorrect hourly billing, low wages, non-compliance with safety regulations and the resulting accidents at work. The situation in Luterbach is so serious that the three organizations Reinigungskollektiv Solothurn, FAU Switzerland and IWW JAM were mandated by the workers to call in the Solothurn Labor Inspectorate.

Hourly wage earners get a maximum of 81%, monthly wage earners a maximum of 92%.
