Together we are stronger
Tell your colleagues about the advantages of SBEA membership and benefit twice: in the form of a bonus at the end of the year, and a strengthened association that can advocate even more effectively for you and your rights.
Your bonus: If you recruit three or more members, you’ll be rewarded at the end of the calendar year with a Coop voucher worth 190 Swiss francs – the equivalent of your membership fee. For ten or more members recruited, you’ll even get a bonus of 500 francs, again paid out in Coop vouchers.
Once you’ve convinced your colleagues, they can register with the SBEA and enter your name in the “Recommended by” field.
Important to know: The right of association is enshrined in the Federal Constitution, and joining an employees’ association is a matter that does not concern employers. The SBEA treats its members’ data with the utmost confidentiality at all times.
