Management is sending threats to staff regarding them exercising their fundamental rights! #ICSCNOTRUST
Broadcast message to all staff on Strikes and work stoppages
In view of the recent call for participation in strikes and work stoppages initiated by various staff representative bodies across duty stations, I would like to clarify the issue of participation of staff members in strikes or work stoppages.
Without prejudice to whether staff members have a right to engage in strikes or work stoppages, strikes or work stoppages resulting in the non-performance of a staff member’s functions are considered non-authorized absences.
In accordance with paragraph 10 of annex I to the Staff Regulations unauthorized absence could trigger the withholding of a part of their salary proportionate to the period of such unauthorized absence.
For further information please refer to the frequently asked questions.

Yes we received it
So, the organisation that defends the rights of people all over the world does not respect the rights of its own staff members , instead, threatening them with repercussions in the event of staff exercising their fundamental rights. How ironic and hypercritical.

UN Geneva votes for strike action!
Who will be next?UN staff in Geneva vote by 1,040 votes to 120 to go on strike.
The results, which are overwhelmingly positive, show the extent to which UN staff have lost trust in the way in which their conditions of service, whether in Geneva or in the deep field, have been set by their employer. Staff queued sometimes as long as 20 minutes to vote. The feedback we received is that the intimidatory email from management backfired and swayed those who were sitting on the fence in favour of the strike.
The first strike day is tomorrow, with plans to escalate if the meeting of the International Civil Service Commission, in New York next week, does not address the pay cut.
We already know that as a result of the vote, the Human Rights Council and other important meetings have been cancelled tomorrow. Other operations are also stopped. ... See MoreSee Less
