USF Federal Committee in Brussels on 16 February 2019

A member of the US-IUE Florence took part to the last Federal Committee of the Union Syndicale Fédérale in Brussels on 16 February.

Several topics were discussed during the meeting, above all the organization of the next Congress in Bratislava (30 May-2 Jun), the ongoing working group on harassment, communications and the use of new media in the digital era, the proposed amendments to the USF Statute to be approved during the Congress, the situation of appeals against some of the provisions introduced by the 2014 staff regulations and Brexit.

One member organization (SACE) complained about the difficult situation which will be involving staff in the upcoming months, resulting from the withdrawal of some contributing states and the subsequent budget cut.

We’ve got enough to deal with at the moment….
