Salary and working conditions

Akademikerne believes that salary should be used actively as an instrument in personnel policy. Salary progression for both groups and individuals should be linked more strongly to knowledge, expertise and commitment, as well as to professional and administrative responsibility. Pay conditions should be used actively to channel society`s knowledge resources where they can be applied best. Akademikerne assumes that the principle of free negotiations will be followed.

The federation supports pay negotiations as near as possible to the workplace, to take greater account of the competition for skills in the job market.
