Labour agreement for 2005

The 52,000 university employees will be getting a modest pay increase of 0.55% as of 1 September and a one-time bonus of 100 euros to compensate for increased pension and health insurance costs. These are the most important conditions laid out in the new collective labour agreement for universities that will be in effect until 31 December. In addition, personnel who become less than 35% disabled will receive employment protection and those who become between 35% and 80% disabled will be entitled to receive 70% of their last-earned income for three years. / HOP
