Cooperative organisation for vocational education and business

Vocational education and the business community work together in the Cooperation Organization for Professional Education Business Life (SBB). The SBB recognizes and supports training companies, among other things, and provides information about the labor market and about job opportunities offered by training courses.


The collective labor agreement 2021-2022 will enter into force on 1 July 2021 and will be in effect until 1 July 2022.

Main points of the current collective labor agreement

In this collective agreement, only the salary tables have been changed compared to the previous collective agreement. All employees will receive a 1,5 percent pay increase. In December 2021, all employees received a one-off payment of 300 euros gross. Part-timers received this benefit pro rata.

Have a say in the collective labor agreement

AObmembers participate in discussing the collective labor agreement. As the AOb- negotiator reaches a negotiator agreement with the employers, members will receive a newsletter in their email in which the agreements are briefly explained. A digital membership consultation is also held and employees can give their opinion on the agreement reached.

Hélène Jansen is sector manager for MBO at the AOb.
