The Central Staff Committee of the Commission writes to Mr Ottinger and Mrs Mogherini

31/052017

Note for the attention of

bulletMr OETTINGER, Commissioner for Budget and Human Resources
bulletMs MOGHERINI, High Representative/Vice President

Subject: Central Staff Committee Resolution on EU Delegations adopted by unanimity

The Central Staff Committee (CSC) held its 491st plenary meeting in the EU Delegation in Montenegro from 18 to 19 May 2017.

The CSC took note of the staff concerns as well as the results of the staff surveys which show a deterioration of the quality of the work-life balance and working conditions in EU Delegations.

The CSC underlines the crucial role staff play in EU Delegations and invites Commissioner Gunther H. Oettinger and High Representative/Vice President Federica Mogherini to coordinate efforts among the Relex services for a swift adoption and implementation of the measures proposed by the CLP HU concept paper on the work-life balance in EU Delegations, and in particular:

bullet

Introduce and implement teleworking in EU Delegations for all staff categories in line with the Commission Decision on teleworking which is already implemented in Commission Headquarters.

bullet

Provide additional special leave for expatriate staff in EU Delegations.

bullet

Introduce more flexibility in use of public holidays for all staff categories, in line with the current practice in Commission Headquarters.

bullet

Assess and address with concrete measures the issue of excessive workload in EU Delegations and stop the staff reduction policy.

bullet

Ensure that flexitime and recuperation is fully implemented for all staff categories in EU Delegations as set out in the Commission Decision on flexitime implemented in Commission Headquarters.

bullet

Modernise the Local Agents Framework Rules by improving the current social rights and protection in line with EU Directives, including (a) increase social security rights to cover additional entitlements to be extended after retirement; (b) maintain the acquired rights of staff in service arising from the specific conditions of employment; (c) introduce and implement a reclassification system for Local Agents.

bullet

In line with the commitment at Commission level, negotiate a transparent procedure to ensure the swift identification and publication of Team Leader posts for Contract Agents foreseen by the new General Implementing Provisions (GIPs).

bullet

Improve medical care and procedures for all staff categories in EU Delegations, including the necessary flexibility to address specific cases.

bullet

Ensure that the security of all staff categories in EU Delegations is given high priority, and introduce the legal basis for Local Agents evacuation/internal relocation measures as discussed by the CSC and CLP HU with the former Commission Vice President Kristalina Georgieva.

bullet

Ensure that job descriptions correspond to the functions of staff in line with the Staff Regulations; Stop recruiting staff at a lower Functional Group or Grade than the functions they are actually performing, i.e. CA FGIII recruited in lieu of CA FG IV; AST replaced by CA; LA Group III recruited in lieu of LA Group II or I, etc.

bullet

Apply accelerated reclassification to all Contract Agents grades, starting from the current reclassification system, taking into account Commissioner Oettinger’s political declaration on the Contract Agents GIPs.

The CSC and CLP HU are working closely with the Commission and the EEAS services for a swift introduction and implementation of the above proposed measures.

As foreseen in Article 9 of Staff Regulations, the CSC and CLP HU request a specific meeting with Commissioner Oettinger and High Representative / Vice President Mogherini to explain the above measures to improve the conditions of staff in EU Delegations.

Contrôle juridictionnel des actes de gestion du personnel en mission PESC

Arrêt de la Cour de Justice attribuant à la Cour de Justice la compétence à connaître des litiges concernant le personnel détaché par les états membres auprès des missions dans le cadre de la PESC. (§ importants surlignés)

La Cour réaffirme que :

bullet

L’existence même d’un contrôle juridictionnel effectif destiné à assurer le respect des dispositions du droit de l’Union est inhérente à l’existence d’un État de droit

bullet

Le Tribunal et, dans le cas d’un pourvoi, la Cour, sont compétents pour contrôler des actes de gestion du personnel relatif aux opérations « sur le terrain » concernant à la fois des agents détachés par les États membres et des agents détachés par les institutions de l’Union.

A cause de cette affaire, le Conseil aurait décidé d'attribuer la personnalité juridique aux missions.

Formation aux concours EPSO

Les personnes postées en délégations peuvent très difficilement se rendre à Bruxelles pour suivre des préparations aux concours EPSO. De ce fait, elles souffrent d'un réel désavantage, face à des candidats mieux préparés.

C'est pourquoi nous avons mis en place un programme de cours à partir du poste de travail, sous forme de webinars. Plus besoin de se déplacer !
