  • JAC (Joint Advisory Committee)

  • Ineffective body

  • Consulting role only

  • No official agreements on how to function

  • Little documentation on the subject

  • Concerns “noted” / Consultation complete

What did we do
What did we do?

  • Int. Org. Staff Unions and Associations cannot operate with the same protections and rights as Public/Private Sector Unions.

  • The Achilles Heel in calling for recognition and collective bargaining was the common perception that we had a small mandate from the staff (quantified by active contributing Union members).

How it works
How it works

  • Each party may bring any issue to the JNC

  • Equal membership 4 + 4

  • Alternate Chair

  • Secretary jointly appointed

  • Either party may bring external experts during negotiations

  • If agreement is reached a joint recommendation is sent to the Registrar

  • Registrar’s decision is published to the staff

Handy tips1
Handy Tips

  • Interchange your membership according to skills, subject etc.

  • Make sure that opposite number has authority to make agreements.

  • Circulate position papers well in advance and insist on the same from the Management.

  • If papers are submitted at the JNC or evening before, cancel and reschedule.

  • Sign off minutes and agreements before closing or adjourning. This avoids misunderstandings and ensures maximum progress.
