Hospitalization Insurance

The RCAM protects you effectively but several reimbursement ceilings or exclusions mean that you need additional insurance covering hospitalization costs, which are the biggest financial risk in the event of a serious illness.

U4U gives you access to such a mutual insurance.

Regular internal meetings

We have established an operation that is nimble and quick to react and this is achieved in three levels:

  • a secretariat that meet every Monday morning that operates every week to run the daily business that puts into place the decisions.
  • an executive bureau that will meet every Monday at noon, every two weeks, that plans the activities, that puts our actions in a framework policy.
  • a union council that will convene once every 3 months in order to discuss and decide on several matters, or, to review an action or a policy. The board is composed of members of the secretariat and the bureau as well as colleagues who represent us in different DGs.

All these three bodies welcome anyone that is willing to show goodwill and participate. Meeting dates are published on the main page of this site. This allows all members to participate and take participate ”locally” or “centrally”.

We have created a strong trade union, one that is original, European, a trade union that wants to reach out to as many people as possible. We want to work in a team mentality, avoid bureaucracy and rigid structures that might be discouraging. We have embarked on quite a formidable adventure, but it is certainly an adventure that is necessary to embark on. We need to face the challenges that lie ahead, face them as members of the most prestigious and necessary service in the Union.
