1 April 2014 - Thank you for sharing, sharing, sharing
The IAEA Staff Association is pleased to share its latest publication of the ECHO (link) with the FICSA membership. Apart the pages which focus on staff issues, the recent FICSA Council and the IAEA Staff Association Ball which featured a Berberian folk dance troupe from Morocco, the magazine has an eclectic selection of articles to please all readers ranging from "Nuclear Power: to be or not to be" to "Goorialla, the Great Rainbow Serpent." Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.
27 March 2014 - Update on the comprehensive review of the UN common system compensation package
In March 2013, the ICSC launched a Comprehensive Review of the United Nations common system compensation package to examine all elements of staff compensation, together with other HR elements falling under its mandate. The Commission's goal is a revised compensation system that is coherent, sustainable and addresses the concerns/expectations of all of its stakeholders—staff, organizations and Member States. The results of the Comprehensive Review are due for submission to the General Assembly in fall 2015.
The Review will take place in stages, beginning with a review of the compensation package for International Professional staff. In subsequent stages, the remuneration of National Professional staff and General Service staff will be reviewed.
Three working groups, each with a specific focus, have been formed to facilitate the Commission's work. (CEB/2014/HLCM/4)
The three working groups are considering:
Working Group I - the remuneration structure, including post adjustment
Working Group II - Competitiveness and sustainability; and
Working Group III - Performance incentives and other human resources issues.
3 March 2014 - WFP changes personal status recognition
Congratulations to WFP. Through its courageous and forward looking decision, it has joined the ranks of a few other UN agencies that have revised their policy on recognition of personal status. Henceforth, personal status for the purposes of granting WFP entitlements and benefits will be recognized for staff members who have entered into a marriage or domestic partnership legally recognized by a competent national authority by reference to the LAW OR LOCATION WHERE THE MARRIAGE or DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIP WAS CELEBRATED OR REGISTERED, and not in reference to the nationality of the staff member. WFP personal status
