FRANKFURT  - The Swiss Bank Employees Association on Sunday called for the immediate creation of a task force to deal with the risk to jobs at Credit Suisse.

The association said it had contacted Credit Suisse on Saturday and that the proposed task force would include management and labour representatives.

"There is an enormous amount at stake for the 17,000 or so employees of CS in Switzerland - and thus also for our national economy," the association said.
