Advice, support and negotiation assistance

As a member of SULF, you can contact us for advice and support on matters related to work and employment, for example if you have been wrongfully dismissed, been injured at work or not received your salary.

In the Work, Salary and Benefits section of the SULF website, we have gathered information about the conditions that apply in the higher education sector. For example, you can read about salaries and salary-setting dialogues, unemployment and tips for your academic career.

Local support

If you have questions about salaries and salary levels, working hours, employment conditions, work environment or if you need negotiation help, you should contact your local Saco-S association. Your local elected representatives have an unparalleled knowledge of the local workplace and conditions and what solutions are possible. They also have extensive knowledge of relevant laws, regulations and agreements. You will find contact details of the local representatives at your higher education institution here.

Central support

Our member support team answers general and fundamental questions regarding labour and employment law. Sometimes it is not possible to solve problems locally, so our experts at the central office assist the local representatives. It is good to have qualified legal support on your side.

In exceptional cases, we may not be able to find a solution, despite the extent of our support. In these cases, members can receive professional legal aid.
