Ohrožení existence veřejnoprávních médií ve Švýcarsku

Dopis předsedy UNI-MEI Johannese Studingera

Ve svém dopise adresovaném všem odborovým organizacím působícím v oblasti médií sdruženým v mezinárodní organizaci UNI-MEI žádá předseda Studinger o vyjádření podpory protestní demonstraci, která se uskuteční 30. ledna ve švýcarském Bernu. Jde o protest proti vládní iniciativě "No-Billag", která, pokud bude schválena, povede ke zrušení koncesionářských poplatků a tím k postupné likvidaci veřejnoprávních médií ve Švýcarsku.

Zde je kompletní text mailu J. Studingera:

Dear Colleagues,

Switzerland is preparing to vote on the initiative "No-Billag" which, if it passes, will lead to the removal of the licence fee that is the cornerstone of the funding of public service broadcasting. The initiative also prohibits any state subsidies to public service broadcasting. "No-Billag" could lead to the closure of up to 60 public TV and radio channels, with local media and minority-language services in particular in jeopardy. Such hits to the public service broadcasting sector will have a substantial impact on the quality of journalism and the functioning of democracy in Switzerland.

The initiative will have a substantial impact on the jobs in the sector, directly leading to the loss of 7'000 jobs. When taking into account jobs indirectly linked to the sector, the estimated reduction of jobs could be as high as 13'000 jobs. These jobs represent the cultural know-how of the Swiss nation. UNI MEI supports the Swiss trade unions in their demand that the "No-Billag" initiative be rejected, to ensure that Switzerland continues to have a strong and independent public service broadcasting sector and to protect the jobs in the sector.

The Swiss trade unions will hold a demonstration on 30 January in Berne. Attached you can find our solidarity message. We would like to ask you to send a message of solidarity, as well as a short video message expressing your support for their campaign. Please send you messages to uni-mei@uniglobalunion.org<mailto:uni-mei@uniglobalunion.org> on Monday, 29 January at the latest. For more information on the campaign, please go online to:
