Law/Patents - Business/Commerce (general) / Swiss contract of employment
German term or phrase: ARGZ
Obviously an abbreviation of some sort, but does anybody know what for? The context is a contract of employment between a baker-confectioner and the employing bakery, and the ARGZ is a "special condition of employment" - a clause in its own right. Whatever it is, it happens from 22:00 at night to 5:00 in the morning, so I'm inclined to think it's "unsocial hours" - but I'd be glad of any pointers, not being able to find this in my dictionaries.

Client has already been contacted and asked, but no answer as yet after a day's wait.

Good to have this identified for me - I haven't done so many contracts that it would be a familiar abbreviation, so I didn't recognise it distorted.
