Focused on staff and strong in negotiations
The NAV works pragmatically and objectively on behalf of the rights and interests of its members and provides advice on issues in the workplace. We are a constructive and reliable social partner and have a solution-oriented approach. The NAV supports and promotes the codetermination rights of Novartis employees by entering into appropriate agreements. The NAV's capability and expertise place it in a strong negotiating position.
The NAV has the legal form of an association, which ensures the sustainability of the NAV and the balanced services it provides to its members.

The statutes define how the association is to present itself to the public as an organisation.
There is a basic agreement in place between Novartis companies and NAV.
