20 February 2017 - Composition of the FICSA Executive Committee officers and Regional Representatives for the forthcoming year
We are pleased to announce that the 70th session of the FICSA Council, hosted by the Staff Association of the WHO Global Service Centre in Kuala Lumpur from 13 to 17 February 2017, elected a new Executive Committee and Regional Representatives for the period February 2017 to February 2018. The composition is now as follows:
26 January 2017 - Thank you all for your support at the demonstration on behalf of WIPO colleagues
FICSA would like to thank everyone who braved the near-freezing temperature on Wednesday, 25 January to join the FICSA/CCISUA demonstration in solidarity with our WIPO colleagues. We also sincerely thank all those colleagues who, from far and wide, sent in their statements of support.
This is the link to the demonstration video which has now been posted on YouTube:
Based on photos and videos, FICSA hopes to compile a documentary to tell the story of the outrageous things unfolding at WIPO. As you will see from the above video, Ed Flaherty referred to the outrage we need to feel about what is happening. During the coming months, we need to transform this outrage into effective collective action to finally oust the WIPO DG and bring back the atmosphere of trust, civility, and respect within the organization --- an atmosphere where international civil servants, decent human beings, can thrive and flourish.
Together we are strong.
20 January 2017 - FICSA/CCISUA demonstration, Wednesday, 25 January 2017
Are you ready to give up your right to express your views, your right to free speech and your freedom of association? Are you ready to go to work every day feeling oppressed and afraid? Are you ready to work in an organization under totalitarian rule by its executive head, wondering every day whether you will be placed under investigation or given an unsatisfactory performance evaluation as a pretext for firing you?
If not, then join members of the staff federations of FICSA and CCISUA at the staff demonstration that will be held on Wednesday, 25 January from 12:15 to 12:45 at the Place des Nations.
Why? Because as these rights are in the process of being taken away from WIPO staff by their DG, and as this same DG is in the process of replacing the duly-elected WIPO Staff Council by his own staff council, executive heads of other international organisations could well be waiting to see how staff will react before trying to do the same in their -your- organisation.
You will recall that:
1. Approximately two years ago the WIPO DG fired the President of the WIPO Staff Council.
2. On the same day the WIPO DG convoked the remaining members of the WIPO Staff Council to say that he had just fired their President and that he hoped the remaining Council members would now work with him. A threat?
3. As the remaining Council members refused to be bullied, threatened and intimidated, the WIPO DG is now organizing elections of his own staff council to replace the duly-elected WIPO Staff Council.
Furthermore, it has been reported that too often staff who speak up at WIPO are either given unsatisfactory performance evaluations or placed under investigation. The increasing level of fear which reigns over staff at WIPO has become intolerable.
How does this affect me? If staff of all UN common system organisations demonstrate their solidarity at this and future events, the leaders of your respective organisations will get the message that their own staff will not tolerate such abuses, an advance message to discourage any potential intentions of copying the behaviour of the WIPO DG.
All that is required to put a stop to such abuses at WIPO and prevent such behaviour in your own organisations is to give up thirty minutes of your lunch break on Wednesday, 25 January, and show up at the Place des Nations at 12:15 sharp.
Working together to serve you.
