On 23 December 2020, prof. dr hab. Piotr Stepnowski, Rector of the University of Gdańsk, and the representatives of all trade unions operating at the University of Gdańsk reached a consensus on implementing salary increase for the university employees.

Under the policy of full transparency of remuneration principles at the University of Gdańsk, below we present the full text of the agreement. Its provisions include the following:

  • full obligatory remuneration for all groups of employees with the lowest income
  • discretionary pay rises for academic teachers (the rules for granting the discretionary part will be based on the evaluation of employees' achievements in research and teaching)
  • introducing thresholds for the discretionary part to prevent lopsided salaries for narrow groups of employees   
  • considering the increases already granted in 2020 to the central administration, favouring those not covered by these increases.

The employees will receive back pay as of 1 October 2020.
