CLA negotiations will continue in January

Five education CLAs will expire on 1 January. Those of primary education, secondary education, higher professional education, universities and research institutions.

“Due to the corona crisis, uncertainty about financing and the increased pension premium, we have unfortunately not yet been able to make new agreements for the longer term,” says AObdriver Douwe van der Zweep.

The collective labor agreement talks will continue in all education sectors in January. It is certain that it is not a simple CLA round this time, explains Van der Zweep. "The higher pension contribution ensures, for example, that pension costs rise. This puts pressure on the scope for salary increases. But the corona crisis is also leaving its mark. ”

The deployment of the AOb is investing: in lowering the workload, in corona measures and in a decent wage increase

In higher education, institutions also wonder whether they will be compensated for the larger student numbers. Van der Zweep: “While the deployment of the AOb in fact requires investments, including in lowering the workload, corona measures and a decent wage increase. ”

Protected

De AOb deliberately chose not to terminate the collective labor agreements that expire on 1 January. This extends the existing agreements and protects employees under the conditions of the current collective labor agreements.

Collective agreements that are not terminated usually remain in force for one year, unless otherwise agreed. In higher professional education, the 'tacit extension' lasts until 1 October 2021 at the latest. The regular twelve months applies to primary and secondary education. Van der Zweep: “But as mentioned, the consultations with employers will continue in January. Among other things to make arrangements for the current corona time. ”

Teaching staff covered by the CLA for primary education received an extra one this year year-end bonus.
