Wage policy

Our members should have a wage level which reflects their education, competence, responsibilities and efforts. Forskerforbundet strives to ensure that our members' wages are competitive, both nationally and internationally.

This is necessary for the research and knowledge sector to be attractive as a career path and for it to be able to recruit, develop and retain the best qualified and motivated knowledge workers in competition with alternative career opportunities.

The basis of Forskerforbundet's wage policy is that education and competence should pay off.

Forskerforbundet's wage policy shall be based on the following instruments:

  • A general percentage supplement.
  • Group additions or adjustments for certain groups of employees.
  • Individual pay raise based on a mutually agreed local wage policy and transparent criteria.
