Organisation - June 21, 2005

Agreement reached

The university unions reached agreement with the executive board over redundancy plans on Wednesday 15 June. The unions will advise their members to approve the agreement. Once this has been done, the reorganisation of the staff departments can go ahead. The DLO unions had already approved the agreement. The redundancy plan covers all employees in the so-called staff departments, where both university and DLO employees work. The order in which redundancies should be made was a point of contention during negotiations. The university unions wanted separate lists to be made for DLO and university employees, the executive board wanted one combined list, which is how they will proceed. / KV
