Ad Hoc 2011 01

Summary of Staff Representation Work in 2011
Trade Unions
print
Every year there is a staff performance evaluation at the Commission.
People who work part time for Staff Represent must submit a report to the "Ad Hoc Committee" for that portion of their activity.
Here is Michael Ashbrook's summary of 2011.

  • * *

In 2011 there were slightly more than 2.000.000 page views on http://sidtu.org .
Michael Ashbrook did around a quarter of the technical work on the website and also wrote roughly that much of its content.

Here are what he considers his best 2011 pieces.
1) Fast and Loose
2) We've Come a Long Way
3) Wiki Witch ain't Dead
4) How to Keep Women Happy
5) NoNukes
6) Burden of Proof
7) Arab Spring
8) Contempt of Court
9) A Chamberpot Full of Money
10) Who's Afreid of Big Bad HR?
11) A Slim Cat Shows his Claws
12) Retire at 67?
13) Cutting Eurostat
14) Negotiations and Hallucinations
15) Contract Agents and Secretaries as Winners
16) A Punch Card in the Stocking and a Time Clock under the Tree
17) They wish Us an Austere Chrismas and a Crappy New Year

In the run-up to the 2010 Local Staff Committee elections his chances of being elected were thought to be slim. That is why he was given a Contractual Agent with six months left as a Substitute. He may have missed one or two meetings due to normal problems, but his attendance record is 95%+. Given that the Staff Committee has no legally binding powers whatsoever and that the US holds 17 of the 20 mandates he used the meetings for communication and to gain information, but made no serious efforts to influence formal decisions.

At the very beginning of his mandate, via email from a mountaintop in central Spain, he warned the Committee against appointing Ms O'Leary to the Disciplinary Committee on account of her link to Mr Byk. Note that she and Ms Reicherts are the two Luxembourgish bosses whose names came up the most frequently in cases of staff abuse by managers in 2011, so his intervention cannot have been completely mistaken.

In 2011 another petition was launched, accepted as receivable by the European Parliament and referred to the Budgetary Committee . Feedback from Members has been 95%+ supportive and there is also support in Legal Affairs Committee . Supporters come from all political groups excepting only the anti-democratic elements of the most extreme Right.

Work on the old petition continued throughout 2011. By year's end almost all unions, HR and some Commissioners pledged to work towards the goal of 192(2009), without mentioning that petition explicitly and while watering down its contents considerably. Well, being myopic is better than completely blind. For a live performance please see at 18:29.

In the past century he obtained a Master of Arts in EU Law from the University of Leicester. In November 2011 he took this course on his own dime and time. He was one of two or three union people present. (There were circa 50 Commission lawyers taking the course.)
