Today, most issues regarding your employment terms are governed by local collective agreements. These are negotiated on-site by the local Saco-S association in order to take local conditions into account as far as possible. So always contact your local Saco-S representative with your questions. You can get help with negotiations, advice or support from them on issues related to your employment. If you contact the central office, you are likely to be contacted by the representative at your workplace anyway, so always contact your local representative for the fastest and best service.
All their contact details can be found in the scroll lists above.
Examples of issues handled by your local Saco-S association:
- Working hours
- Terms of employment
- Working environment
- Negotiation help
- Saco-S: SULF is the contact union for the Saco-S councils and Saco-S associations at the majority of universities and colleges.
- SULF Association: SULF has its own local associations at most universities. Their main task is to monitor and advocate for university professional issues.
- Central Office: deals with issues of a more specialist nature, such as membership helpline, press, membership, fees, payment systems, the Universitetsläraren magazine, pensions, studies and more.
