The in-house union is a fact, interest is growing (72 in few days) and only few rejections.
Guido Palumbo and Marc Van de Velde have received a number of questions from the staff to which they will try to answer as soon as possible. On February 18, a general staff assembly is planned and they will participate and present there the prospect union initiative.
The most interesting point is the fact that the introductory videos on the different topics will be done in good cooperation with Emmanuel Larue, Staff Committee Spokesperson and President of IPSO, showing that, at internal level, staff are not divided and cooperate well.
We do wish that an increase in the membership in unions might happen after the staff assembly.
From the prospect union's side, they will soon call their colleagues to a first assembly together in order to propose them the statutes and working procedures. These documents, after having being adopted by the assembly, will be published in the "Vereinsregister". From then on, they will get their official statutes!
The SCECBU wish to the prospect union a successful first assembly !"
