New CAO changes
On 3 November, the Universities of the Netherlands published the final text of the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO NU) 2023-2024. All CAO changes can be found in:
- Annual agreements become function-based contracts
- Changed rates of continued payment of wages during illness
The HRM Directorate is processing the latest CAO changes and will implement them together with the faculties and centres of expertise. Since the changes take effect at different times, this implementation will be phased. If relevant changes are made, the employees concerned will be notified.
