Collective Labor Agreement Of The Dutch Universities (Cao Nu)

The final NUacity documents are expected to be published in June. The CAD-NU agreement can be reached here. For any questions, please contact your faculty or department`s human resources department The One-Time Payment also applies to student assistants and on-call students who have a collective agreement. One reason is that they suffer particularly from COVID 19 measures. UUT-flex workers receive the one-time payment based on the average number of hours worked during January, February and March 2020. Universities and unions have jointly launched a „public-friendly“ version of the collective agreement. This website provides a general overview of the collective agreement and provides a clear overview of the most important information on terms of employment. Trade union and trade union organisations FNV, AC/FBZ, CNV Overheid and VAWO/CMHF and the Federation of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) have reached a negotiation agreement on a new collective agreement that will affect some 50,000 university staff in the Netherlands. By June 30, after consultation with representatives, the parties will decide whether this negotiating regime should be transformed into a final agreement. Compensation and social benefits agreed with trade unions must be recorded in the collective agreement of Dutch universities. The caoNU (the latest version of the collective agreement), valid from January 1, 202o, can be downloaded from the menu on the right. The parties reserve a one-time pay margin of 0.45 per cent for ancillary financing of bottlenecks in response to the costs associated with COVID 19`s problems related to the terms and conditions of employment of our employees. In this context, it may be possible to extend the working times of scientists, PhD students, teachers and support and management staff (OBPs).

Agreements will be reached in the coming weeks on how universities can benefit from this reserve. This is why personal development, sustainable employability and the mobility of staff at Dutch universities are of paramount importance. The signed agreement is available on the VSNU website. Approval of scientific research funding defines reciprocal commitments to staff recruited by institutions and funded by the Dutch Research Community (NWO, Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek). These are based on the collective agreements of the VSNU (for universities) and the NFU (for academic medical centres).
