Fixed contract is over, can i ask a higher salary for a new contract?

Hi guys,

So i've got a 2 years fixed contract with the high probability to be extended once it expires. Now, im wondering if I could actually ask for a higher salary if offered a new one? Does it work out well in reality? Any experience to share?

Thanks!

While on the fixed contract, if you were paid via an agency, you might have negotiation room, but otherwise, unless you were underpaid I don't see much hope. You can always ask though, and hope for a rise. Wages have risen by something like 5% over the past 10 years!
