  • JAC (Joint Advisory Committee)

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.
