Within the framework of the right of association recognised , under Article 24b (Title I) of the Statutory Rules for Administrative Staff, a union branch linked to the Brussels branch of the Union of European and International Civil Servants (SFEI) was founded on 2 May 1977 at the EUI.

The Institute officially recognised the organisation as being representative of the staff, and a framework agreement was signed.

Following developments of the UIL at Ispra, and upon joining the European public service union (Union Syndicale), the US-IUE Florence was established.

US-IUE Florence defends the trade-union liberties of its affiliates, members of the EUI administrative staff.
