Staff in secondary education will receive a one-off and on a permanent basis this year. The education unions and employers have agreed on a new collective labor agreement. According to the General Education Association, much more money is needed to solve all the problems in secondary education. This is reported by the Algemeen Dagblad.
The trade unions have reached an agreement with the VO Council on a one-year collective labor agreement. This will run from January 1 this year to December 31 of this year. The end-of-year bonus is then increased to a thirteenth month. In addition, all salaries will also be increased by 1.5 percent from 1 October 2021. And it is the intention that in November all full-time employees will receive a one-off gross payment of 800 euros.
A working group consisting of sixty teachers, school leaders, support staff and administrators is now also working on a plan. That plan will state how they can reduce the workload and what the task policy entails. The first results are expected at the end of the year and these will then be included in the negotiations of a collective labor agreement for 2022. The agreements made this year still have to be approved by the trade unions.
Earlier this week, it was also announced that there was a wage increase for all primary school employees.
