Update CAO: salary increase and one-off allowance to be paid in September

12 August 2021

Following a positive consultation with members, the CAO (Collective Labour Agreement) parties have converted the negotiation agreement of 2 June into a definitive agreement on the Collective Employment Agreement for Dutch Universities 2021-2022.

In summary:

  • The CAO will apply up to and including 31 March 2022.
  • On 1 July 2021, we will increase your salary by 1.64% and on 1 January 2022 by 0.36%.
  • If you were employed by the University on 1 July 2021 you will receive a one-off allowance of €650.
  • You will receive the salary increase for 1 July 2021 and the one-off allowance in September.
  • How we can translate the CAO agreements to the Leiden situation depends on the definitive text of the CAO. We expect to receive this text at the end of September.
  • If the new CAO has any consequences for your situation in terms of employment law, we will contact you.

End September a definitive 2021-2022 CAO text

Behind the scenes, the VSNU and the employees’ organisations are working on the new CAO text. We expect that this text will be available on the website of the VSNU at the end of September. At the end of August, the same website will have a set of FAQs on the impact of the definitive CAO agreement. As soon as the FAQ is online, we will share it on the staff website.

The Leiden situation

We are also working hard within Leiden University on implementing the CAO agreement. For some issues we are dependent on the definitive CAO text. As soon as this is available we will be able to translate the agreements made to the Leiden situation. If the new agreements have any consequences for your situation in terms of employment law, we will contact you.

New salary tables

You will receive the salary increase effective from 1 July 2021 and the one-off allowance in September. You can view the new salary tables on the website. The salary tables effective from 1 January 2022 will follow in September.
