CAO negotiations officially launched

On May 31, parties started negotiations on a new Collective Labour Agreement Research Institutions (CAO-OI). The parties are the Werkgeversvereniging Onderzoekinstellingen (WVOI), of which NWO, NWO-I and the KB are members, and the employee organizations AOb, CNV and FNV.

The CAO negotiations began in the customary manner with the exchange of the Notes of Commitment.

Besides duration and pay, the common themes that were discussed constructively were sustainable employability, expansion opportunities in AVOM and diversity & inclusion. Under diversity & inclusion, options explored include swapping some holidays and decoupling religion from leave, informal care leave and gender transition leave.

Negotiations will continue on June 28.
