Give your input on the new Social Plan

What happens if I am in danger of losing my job in the future due to, for example, a reorganisation or downsizing? The current Social Plan, which sets out all the rights and obligations of you as an employee and Radboud University as an employer in the event of dismissal, expires at the end of 2024. What wishes and questions do you have about the new Social Plan? The Executive Board and the unions are looking for your input.

The unions and the Executive Board would like to hear from members and non-members about their questions and wishes regarding the Social Plan and hope to reach an agreement on a Social Plan for the coming years. Would you like to let your wishes and questions be heard or do you have questions about other employment conditions (issues)? Then contact the union secretary of the Local Consultation Committee, Arina Vermaas, by e-mail. (arina.vermaas [at]

The Social Plan 

The basic principle of the Social Plan is to avoid forced redundancies as much as possible and is part of the university's terms of employment. The Social Plan applies to all Radboud University employees who become redundant as a result of a reorganisation, other organisational change, abolition of duties or application of the principle of separation of staff following a reduction in the number of interchangeable positions. The Social Plan covers the following matters, among others:

  • Reinstatement
  • Contract termination
  • Dismissal protection
  • Wage supplement
