Shipwrecked of the Reform

R&D calls the « shipwrecked of the reform » all the colleagues recruted after the 1st of Mai 2004 and who were classified two to three grades below the one announced in the notice of competition. By modifying the conditions of recruitment and the development of career of the newly recruited after the 1st of May 2004 – mainly the nationals of the new member States – Kinnock and his allies managed to create a two speed public function. For the fist time in the history of the European institutions, a trade union supported all the colleagues of all the institutions. R&D has two approaches: a political one and a judicial one.
