Process for primary negotiations pertaining to state sector fixed-term employment (STAVA)

  2. The contact person for co-determination in the workplace opens a case in ServiceNow and attaches the relevant documentation. 
  3. The HR Division receives cases and books in times for negotiations (not on Tuesdays). 
  4. The participants in the negotiation are the organisation through the manager responsible, local HR and employee organisations. The HR Division runs the negotiations as chair and takes minutes.
