Titularization what is it about

Titularization: What is it about ?

Titularization means

granting a permanent contract to an official.

“Permanent” being, in ILO/UN jargon,

without limit of time (WLT)

except reaching retirement age (pensionable age)

(which remains a legitimate ground for termination)


Advantages of titularization

Advantages of titularization

Indirect protection against dismissal:

Reasons for terminating a WLT contract have to be stated (“proposal for termination”), the official is entitled to appeal to the Joint Committee

-  Loans, notably with MEC:

Titularized staff can get a credit for a longer time

(until retirement age) than FT staff (e.g. for buying a house)

-Repatriation grant (internationally recruited staff):

Only titularized officials are entitled to a repatriation grant;

FT staff get a lump sum according to their length of service


Conditions and criteria

Circular6/452 (rev.1) of 8 April 1993

Good conduct, satisfactory performance, seniority, official’s capacity to pursue a career in his/her field of competence and the prospective needs of the organization

Satisfactory service is the prevailing condition for receiving a WLT, in addition to seniority

Priority is given by order of entry-on-duty

Officials in probationary period are excluded

Conditions and Criteria


Seniority striking differences

Seniority: Striking differences

Titularization for G staff after about 12 years

and for P staff after about 7 years

(quota depend upon retirement patterns)

Progress was made over the last 15 years: Equalization between HQ and Field G staff

Difference between P and G stems from

Need to « take on board » Field staff

Quicker retirement of P staff (demography + pension matters) coupled with slower recruitment

THIS DIFFERENCE RESULTS FROM A PRACTICE, NOT FROM STATUTORY RULES


Titularization

The exercise is a joint one, conducted by SU representatives and by HRD, sitting at parity

on an ad-hoc committee

Procedure

  • There are two lists established, based on actual date

    of entry in the ILO, one for G staff (HQ and Field) and one for P staff

  • The cut-off dates are established on the basis of number of

    positions vacated through

    retirement, end of service, promotion to higher category

  • The length of the period between the cut-off dates may vary from one titularization exercise to the next


Titularization

The Staff Union Committee sends a broadcast indicating cut-off dates, so that staff may contact the SUC in order to learn whether their name is on these lists

Procedure (ctd.)

  • The working group then establishes the lists of staff who might be eligible for a WLT contract (some exceptions: ISSA; CINTERFOR, INST)

  • The Working Group analyses the opinions expressed

    by the directors and submits to the JNC lists of

    recommendations based on that analysis

  • The Joint Negotiating Committee then recommends to the Director General

    the names of officials to be titularized


Titularization

Branch offices are liaison offices established in industrialized countries. The rules for branch offices date back from a time when staff there were in fact hired by governments and more or less paid by them

Special Cases: Branch Offices

  • Things have changed (ILO is in most cases the direct employer) but rules remain – FOR MOST IF NOT FOR ALL

  • Direct request for review was sent to CABINET. Issue was raised on JNC.Strong support from EUROPE (most of BO)

  • Equally true for National correspondents !


Titularization

Employment in these units is now stable and not of limited duration

Special Cases: CINTERFOR, ISSA, INST

  • However, they still have more flexibility in recruitment than “ILO core” (quotas) and do not fully rely on RB funds

  • Titularization is therefore possible within numbers specific to each of these units,

i.e. a WLT is granted if

the previous holder of a WLT leaves


Titularization

An established practice:

Approaching retirement

  • For colleagues eligible for titularization

    at or after reaching the age of 57,

    granting FT contract for up to 5 years

    instead of « blocking » a position. However, P staff should take care not to lose their rights concerning the repatriation grant.

This approach could also be used

for other types of « special cases »


Titularization

PROTECT TITULARIZATION PROCESS FROM THE COMMON SYSTEM DISADVANTAGES

The Union agenda

  • ACHIEVE EQUALITY BETWEEN G AND P STAFF

  • EXTEND TITULARIZATION AT LEAST TO ALL COLLEAGUES IN BRANCH OFFICES PAID BY ILO

  • PROTECT CINTERFOR, ISSA, INSTITUTE COLLEAGUES THROUGH LONGER CONTRACT PERIODS
