EPSU Executive: Internal Decision-Making
EPSU’s Executive Committee is responsible for determining policies in between Congresses and meets at least once per year. Representation of unions is on a country basis. It is led by EPSU’s President, Isolde Kunkel-Weber (Ver.di, Germany) and General Secretary, Jan Willem Goudriaan. The Vice-Presidents are Dave Prentis (UNISON UK), Françoise Geng (CGT Santé Action Sociale France), Mette Nord (Fagforbundet, Norway) and Mikhail Kuzmenko (HWURF, Russia).
Four Standing Committees focus the technical and vocational / sectoral work of EPSU:
- Health and Social Services (HSS)
- Local and Regional Government (LRG)
- National and European Administration (NEA)
- Public Utilities (UT)
Every year the Member Auditors visit the EPSU offices to discuss the final finance report and check the accounts.
