Without general pay rises, your pay could treat water
JUKO, the Negotiation Organization for Public Sector Professionals, has approved the new universities’ collective agreement, which is valid from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2024.
The pay rises in the first year will amount to 1.9%. First, a general pay rise of 1.45% for all employees under the agreement will take effect from 1 June. Then, a university-specific pay rise of 0.45% will take effect in December.
The employees’ trade unions and Finnish Education Employers will negotiate on the pay rises in the second year by the end of January. If the parties do not reach a mutual understanding on pay rises, notice can be served to terminate the agreement with effect from 31 March 2023.
The compensation paid to shop stewards and occupational safety representatives will increase by 1.9% from 1 June.
