The collective agreement includes three periods for salary revision: October 1 2020, June 1, 2021 and October 1, 2022. It includes all Saco members, with exception for doctoral candidates and amanuensis. Negotiations for new salaries for doctoral candidates, amanuensis as well as other local salary agreements will be started soon. More information about these will sent out as soon as agreements have been reached.

For the first period, October 1, 2020 – May 31, 2021, a general wage increase of 1,9% will be paid out to all Saco members in February or March 2021, retroactively from October 1, 2020.

During the second salary revision period that starts June 1, 2021, individual accomplishment will be taken into account, as stipulated in Saco’s central collective agreement for salary revision. Individual accomplishment during the period October 1, 2019 to May 31, 2021 will be taken into account. Our local collective agreement stipulates that the financial space for wage increases will be at least 2,2% of the aggregated salary level, to be allocated in the individual salary negotiations. Wage-setting meeting and wage negotiations will take place during the autumn of 2021; new salaries will be in effect from June 1, 2021 and be paid out retroactively from that date before the end of 2021. More detailed information will be sent out later.

The third period for salary revision covers the period from October 1, 2022 to September 30, 2023. This will include individual salary revisions and does not include a specified financial space for wage increases.

Before the wage negotiations that will take place during the autumn of 2021 begin, Saco will send out a form for all members to fill in, which provides the Saco with an overview of each member’s individual accomplishments for the period October 1, 2019 to May 31, 2021.

We will send out information this spring about which groups that will have a wage-setting meeting.
