In its meeting on 28 October 2022, the University Board of the University of Turku decided on launching a long-term Financial Balancing Programme. The Board authorised the Rector to launch preparations for finding ways to correct the funding deficit of around €1.5–2 million during 2023 and, by 2028, a deficit of around €15 million in the basic missions. The deficit can be covered by both increasing the income and decreasing expenses.
The change negotiations started at the University between the employer representatives and Chief Union Representatives on 17 November 2022. Altogether, the negotiating parties held nine meetings, one of which was split between two days. The last change negotiation meeting was held on 10 February.
Rector Jukka Kola will prepare an action proposal on the basis of the change negotiations and other preparations which the University Board will handle in its meeting on 14 February.
