CDR appeals: tangible results for colleagues

R&D has been against the current CDR system since the beginning. But while it lasts, we think it’s our duty to do our best to help and defend colleagues. Over six months, a team of experts from R&D and the other trade unions have defended more than 3,500 appeals (2,000 AD and 1,500 AST). R&D will confirm its strong position for a definitive abandonment of this system – that has proved to be highly unsatisfactory for both staff and middle management members. [...]

CDR: The Missing Promotions

Are 142 Staff Members (in Grades: AST 4D, AST6C, AST 10B and AD 13) Kids of a lesser God? Staff Regulation are no longer respected by the whole ADMINISTRATION?

R&D demand an end to this disaster: we invite the Commissioner and DG HR to finally accept the exorbitant failure of the CDR in its entirety, and to follow best practices in other institutions. We cannot accept another round of this nightmare for everybody involved next year! [...]

CDR 2010: a bitter failure! Already more than 3000 appeals

Considering the 4000 appeals of the previous year, and officials’dissatisfaction, R&D has been again writing to the administration since September last year proposing measures to change the CDR from 2010, in cooperation with a very large majority of the other unions. The Administration has nevertheless persevered in its catastrophic approach to the careers and motivation of staff. [...]
