Union Syndicale Fédérale Luxembourg ongoing campaign to improve the proposed internal competitions (see below) resulted in the following points being agreed during yesterday’s meeting between President Juncker, Commissioner Oettinger and trade unions:
- Reduction from 42 to 36 months in the service for the eligibility for the internal competitions;
Have a constructive social dialogue between the administration and staff representation to enhance the proposed internal competitions.
We warmly welcome the response of President Junker and Commissioner Oettinger to staff needs, and we are happy the above Union Syndicale Fédérale Luxembourg requests have been taken on board. This is a positive first step in the right direction. However, to fully address the concerns of all colleagues, additional measures are needed to increase access to internal competitions and to ensure equal treatment of all candidates.
