Local pay negotiations normally occur once a year in both the private and the public sector. AFAG gives assistance and advice during negotiations.
Updated pay statistics are a vital tool, both to check your own pay in relation to the industry generally and as a tool in negotiations with your employer. AFAG gives its members updated pay statistics every year.
Disputes between employer and employee are a not uncommon aspect of employment. AFAG's lawyers can help you to find a good solution if such a dispute should arise. We also offer the legal reference work Compendia Personal on our website.
