Support to our colleagues at the European Patent Office (EPO)

The ILO Staff Union Committee supports the struggle of the EPO Staff Association to maintain its work under decent conditions and without retaliatory measures. Indeed, for three years, the staff of this organization has been working in a toxic environment where the deterioration of working conditions is well known.

The representation of the staff is constantly repressed in a brutal way (demotion, eviction) which, in fact, prevents any dialogue between the staff and its administration.

We encourage you to read the articles published by our colleagues of the CERN Staff Association (http://cds.cern.ch/journal/CERNBulletin/2016/48/Staff%20Association/2235528?ln=en) and the ECB (European Central Bank) (http://ipso.de/page.php?c=3)

The ILO Staff Union Committee has already communicated its support and solidarity to the staff of the EOB.
