Salary & salary surveys


We create transparency

For many employees, the issue of salary is of central importance, as shown by the great interest in the salary survey conducted by the SBEA every two years.

A salary survey is due again in the spring of 2023, nd the results will be announced in due course.

In the banking industry, annual salary developments, in particular cost-of-living adjustments, are not negotiated by the social partners, but by the elected staff councils in the individual banks in accordance with the Agreement on Conditions of Employment for Bank Employees (ACEBE). In consultation with the staff councils, the SBEA makes a recommendation for wage demands in each case and communicates this via the media.

The ACEBE contains further rules on the subject of salary.

If you would like to find out more about whether you are being paid in line with the market, you can also consult the salary calculators of the Swiss Trade Union Federation or the Federal Statistical Office (last updated in 2018).
