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
