EPSU Finance Working Group meets second time

EPSU Finance working group meeting 5 APril 2022

(6 April 2022) The Members of the Finance working group considered an updated proposal from the Secretariat. The proposal takes account of the recent developments with regard to membership loss, indexation in Belgium, the use of provisions in the 2021 budget to relieve pressure on the budgets for the coming years and discussions with affiliated unions as to their views on earlier proposals.  Most discussion focused on the indexation system. As an employer EPSU is obliged to apply the automatic indexation in Belgium. With staff costs being our most important item on the budget, this has an important effect.  The Finance Working Group operates with a clear mandate of the Executive Committee. It wishes to maintain the Federation as a leading actor and voice for Europe’s public service workers. We compared the developments of the fees with other Federations.

The majority of the Finance working group recommends the proposal to the Executive Committee. It further recommends in the setting of priorities for the 2024 Congress to link what we can do much stricter to our resources.  The meeting took place online 5 April 2022. The meeting was chaired by the EPSU President and the General Secretary presented the proposals.
