Salary Negotiations are Done

The salary negotiations for 2012 are now done, and we ended up with an increase of ~2,3%. Of course, we think that it could have been a better outcome, but at least the raise is higher than the 2 previous years.

We have also been able to get a representative from DS in the negotiation group, which has not happened before. This year, the PhD representative came in rather late in the process, but next time he/she will be there from start, a development with which we are very happy.

Please come to the general Assembly on Wednesday if you have any questions or opinions about the salary agreement, or other issues!
