Complete the form

If you want to be considered for a pay increase, you need to fill out an online form. On the form, you describe the performance and competencies you believe should be taken into account in the pay negotiations. You can find the form HERE (page will be active between 2 - 24 February 2022)

All employees who wish to submit proposals for pay increase – also employees who can negotiate themselves – must use the pay negotiation form.

The period for submission of information for the annual pay negotiations is 2 - 24 February 2022.

HR distributes the information to the negotiating manager and union representative (unless you are negotiating yourself and choose not to involve your union representative).

It is important to be well-prepared

Before you fill out the form, it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the salary agreement catalogues, salary agreements and any local criteria that you have to meet.

You can also ask you union representative for more information.

*) Please note that local salary criteria may apply.

What can be negotiated?

You can propose two types of supplements:

  • Supplement for qualifications
  • One-off bonus 

Read more about the different types of supplements here

If the content of your job changes, the following points may be relevant:

  • Change of pay group (only relevant for Administrative Officers/Laboratory technicians (HK) and IT Staff (PROSA))
  • Reclassification (only relevant for academic staff - changing category to special- or senior consultant)

Who will negotiate my salary?

If you submit information to be used for a salary increase, the negotiation will take place between your union representative and your manager. However, some employees have the option of negotiating directly with their manager – more information is provided on the form.

Where do I find my AUID?

You need to write your AUID, when you submit your information for the salary negotiations.

Read more about how to find your AUID here

Disbursement of pay increases

You will be informed about the result of the salary negotiations after your manager and all of the union representatives for the employees in your unit have concluded negotiations for everyone. Pay increases will be paid out soon after with force from 1 April 2022


Please contact your union representative if you have any questions regarding salary agreements, salary criteria etc.

Please contact Nat-Tech HR, if you have questions regarding your current salary, which negotiation group you belong to etc.
