Membership fee: New gross settlement per 1st January 2016

From 1st January 2016 on, the gross settlement principle for charging the membership fee applies due to an adaptation in our umbrella organization Angestellte Schweiz (AS).

The gross membership fee is CHF 290 per year. This amount will normally be invoiced in the first quarter of the year. Part of this amount is transferred from AVP to the umbrella organization AS according to an agreement with AS.

Furthermore, in January of the following year, a refund will be paid to the members: on the one hand the amount of the Solidary Statement which was deducted from the salary (max. 12 x CHF 5/months = CHF 60) and on the other hand a contribution of CHF 110. This means a net strain of CHF 120 per member and year.

Solidarity Statement

The Solidarity Statement confirms the amount which was paid by the employee during the year by deduction from the salary (CHF 5 per month = CHF 60 maximum).

The Solidarity Statements will be issued by the company. The company sends the statements directly to the private address of the employees under the GAV (collective agreement). The members send the Solidarity Statement together with the information of their bank account to AVP. AVP stamps the Solidarity Statements and transfers them to the umbrella organization AS. AS in turn sends the statements to Swissmem. Each statement confirms the membership in one of the five employee organizations of the MEM branch. Swissmem administers the solidary funds and distributes the money to the employees organisations.
