P & G staff:
Differences and Rules
Definitions and good intentions
Classification of Jobs
Working and Employment Conditions
Art.0.1 of the Staff regulations:
The Staff Regulations (…) regulate the conditions of employment and set forth the duties and rights
of the officials of the International Labour Office.
Kofi Annan, September 2002 :
Action 28.Effective 1 January 2003, all employees of the United Nations Secretariat will be referred to as international civil servants.
Juan Somavia, May 2003 : Whether we are G-staff, P-staff or national professional officers, we are part of one single entity and one single Organization. I remember the Secretary-General saying something of that order a couple of years ago, and maybe we can think about starting to see all staff as international civil servants performing different functions in the same international institution. And we should not discriminate on the basis of distinctions between field and headquarters.
Article 2.2 of the Staff Regulations:
Jobs shall be classified in categories and grades, in accordance with the duties and responsibilities attaching to them, as follows:
(1) DG, DDG, ADG, TFC
(2) Director & Principal Officer category – D2 & D1
(3) Professional category – P1 to P5

(5) « General Service category, comprising all other grades »
Local Recruitment: Tougher than ever …

to the General Service category
Jobs in this category shall AS FAR AS POSSIBLE be filled by
locally recruited officials.
(b)Officials of the GS category (…) shall not NORMALLY be transferred
No such transfer shall take place
without the official’s consent
That Obscure Object of Desire …

(b)Officials of the National Professional Officers category (…)
SHALL NOT be transferred to other duty stations.
MEANS: "Abandonall hope ye who enters here"
