Central and Local Staff Committees (SC)

The Staff Committees represent the interests of the staff vis-à-vis the Institution and contributes to the smooth running of the service. They are the equivalent of 'Work Council', 'Comité du personnel' or 'Comité d'entreprise' of middle to large companies in the private sector.

European Works Councils are bodies representing the European employees of a company. Through them, workers are informed and consulted by management on the progress of the business and any significant decision at European level that could affect their employment or working conditions. Member States are to provide for the right to establish European Works Councils in companies or groups of companies with at least 1000 employees in the EU or EEA, when there are at least 150 employees in each of two Member States (see directive 2006/109/EC).

Role

In the European Commission, the Staff Committees are an elected statutory body which represent all officials and other agents of the Commission vis-à-vis the Administration and the College of Commissioners to ensure that the rules established by the Commission as regards staff are fully respected. Their function is:

bullet

to represent the interests of the staff vis-à-vis the Institution,

bullet

to contribute to the smooth running of the service by delivering consultative opinion on general issues related to the interpretation and application of the Staff Regulations.

The role and the function of the Staff Committee is

bullet

to participate in the application of the rules and regulations implementing the staff policy as negotiated by the trade unions and professional organisations of the Commission in order to ensure they are in conformity with agreements reached.

bullet

to play a consultative or participative role in helping staff to resolve problems through a series of statutory and administrative committees.

To this effect, the Staff Committees :

bullet

designate staff representatives to either statutory or joint committees.

bullet

delegate a part of their competencies, as regards particular work requirements, to sectoral staff delegations.

bullet

will question the Administration on any deviations or erroneous interpretations of agreements.

Therefore, the role of the Staff Committees is central to the protection of Staff interests, both collective and individual. The representatives in the statutory or joint committees play a crucial role to ensure that rules are applied with fairness in litigious cases.

Structure

The Staff Committee consists of:

bullet

the Central Staff Committee (CSC),

bullet

8 Local Staff Committees (LSCs) situated in the 8 principle places of employment of staff - Brussels, Luxembourg, Ispra, Karlsruhe, Petten, Geel, France and "Outside the Union".

The staff in each principle place of employment elects the members of the LSC. The LSC members elect among themselves the members of the CSC.

The particular case of EU delegations

Composition of the CSC of the European Commission

Local Staff Committee Composition (full members + equivalent number of alternates) Delegation to the Central Staff Committee
Brussels 27 19 full members + 19 alternates
Luxemburg 20 7 full members + 7 alternates
Ispra - Sevilla 21 7 full members + 7 alternates
Karlsruhe 8 1 full members + 2 alternates
Geel 7 1 full members + 2 alternates
Petten 7 1 full members + 2 alternates
France 4 1 full members + 2 alternates
Outside Union 14 3 full members (with at least 1 official and 1 local agent) + 4 alternates

Trade Unions and Staff Associations (OSPs)

The central function of a trade union is to represent people at work and to protect their interests.

The existence of strong and recognized trade unions is a pre-requisite to industrial peace. Decisions taken through the process of collective bargaining and negotiations between employer and unions are more influential. Trade unions are helpful in effective communication between the workers and the management. They provide the advice and support to ensure that the differences of opinion do not turn into major conflicts. They also play an important educational role, organizing courses for their members on a wide range of matters. Seeking a healthy and safe working environment is also prominent feature of union activity.

Role of a Trade Union

Trade unions are organisations that represent people at work. Their purpose is to protect and improve people's pay and conditions of employment. They also campaign for rules and policies which will benefit working people.

Trade unions exist because an individual worker has very little power to influence decisions that are made about his or her job. By joining together with other workers, there is more chance of having a voice and influence.

Trade unions aim to further its members' interests, inter alia by :

bullet

Negotiating employment conditions and job descriptions

bullet

Obtaining satisfactory rates of pay and correct career perspectives

bullet

Protecting or improving working conditions, such as health and safety and equal opportunities

bullet

Protecting workers jobs and employment

bullet

Protecting individuals, if there is a problem at work

bullet

Securing adequate work facilities

Most "collective bargaining" takes place quietly and agreements are eventually reached by the union and the employer. Occasionally disagreements do occur and the two sides cannot agree. In these cases, the union may decide to take industrial action. Industrial action takes different forms: it could mean an over time ban, a work-to-rule or a strike...

Role in the European Commission

The Trade Unions defend the general interest of the staff of the Institution. They maintain stable and structured relations with the Administration, even though they are not statutory organs.

The Agreement on Relations between the European Commission and the Trade Unions and Staff Associations ("Framework Agreement") defines that social dialogue may relate to any matters relating to staff policy and the working conditions of officials and other servants.

However concertation procedures can only apply to a modification of the existing rules or a creation of new rules, without prejudice to the statutory competences of the Staff Committee. Concertations may be held on administrative (with the Director of the relevant services), technical (with DG HR) and political (with the Commissionner in charge of HR) levels.

U4U is a general union that represents staff from several Institutions belonging to the European Union or being considered as European intergovernmental organisations.

Why should you join a Trade Union and this one in particular ?

Unions are made up of the people who want to have their voice heard, their interests promoted, their claims presented to the employer. If you stay out, you will have no or little influence.

Unions are effective. Of course, they cannot completely reverse a political trend that results from general elections. But they often can limit the adverse effects of policies and negotiate changes to a project. The capacity of unions to resist and negotiate is a direct result of the volume of their membership and influence in social elections. In other words, the strength of a Union comes from its members and no other source.

U4U is an organisation that is non-bureaucratic, assertive, creative and full of fighting spirit. Contrary to some other unions, you can easily participate to shaping our policies and elaborating our claims. All you have to do is to turn in our internal meetings (see invitations on the home page of this website) and become an active member.

Not all trade unions are the same.
Make your own judgment. If you want to know us better before joining, please read our press. Thus, you will have a good view on who we are, what we are fighting for and what are our achievements.

U4U :

bullet

is defending a European construction that serves citizens

bullet

is active all the time and do not only wake up at election time.

bullet

defends all staff (Civil Servants and contractual agents, AD and AST grades, pre- and post-2004 staff) (Particular case of Staff in the Agencies)

bullet

builds unity, promotes a united front and common actions

bullet

knows the issues and makes proposals that are well constructed and argued. Therefore U4U is recognised as a valid negotiation partner.

See our slide presentation Yes, I want to get unionized now

Further reading : yes, Trade Unions are good for the economy !

Trade unions recognise that organisations must be competitive in the global markets if they are to be successful and provide secure employment for employees.

Trade unions have an important role in:

bulletimproving communication between employees and managers so that employees can understand and be committed to the organisation's objectives
bulletnegotiating improvements to pay and working conditions so that people feel more satisfaction at work and stay longer in their jobs
bulletencouraging companies to invest in training and development so that employees have the skills necessary for improved products and services
bulletacting as a positive force for change - by winning employees' support to the introduction of new technologies and work organisation

Europe's most successful companies are ones where unions are recognised. Mutatis mutandis, this applies to the European Institutions. They also rely on their staff for reaching their objectives. They also constantly need to adapt to a changing environment. They also need their Unions.

U4U is a constructive partner, committed to a socially responsible European Union.

Who is the boss ?

In a private company, employees know who is the boss. But in a European institution ? The hierarchy, the HR administration, the appointing authority, the head of the institution, the legislator and, down the line, the Council, which is formed of Member States, all have a decisive power on our Staff Regulations and their implementing regulations, on the budget (which defines available posts and missions), on day-to-day decisions such as restructuring, mobility, promotions, continuation or discontinuation of contracts…

To complicate matters, the Commission is the primus inter pares which shapes by its own decisions the HR policy of other institutions and Agencies.

Of course, this complex structure is used by the employer to divide and rule.

This is why it is very important for a European trade-Union to be a general Union, able to be present in all institutions, in order to maintain unity in the social dialogue and to speak with one voice to all stakeholders.

Unfortunately, the staff is sometimes seduced by Unions who are present in one structure only. These in-house Unions claim to be closer to the staff and to be more familiar with the local situation. However, in truth, they are instrumental in the employers’ divide et impera policy. They are not effective negotiators because they lack access to the ‘big picture’. In the European Institutions, the huge number of small Trade Unions is a major weakness that the Staff pays dearly.
