Dear colleagues,Oh deary me. Quel horreur!!
We need you to vote for at least two reasons:
There is a real and imminent danger of the entitlements guaranteed by the Staff Regulations being called into question,
We need to safeguard the working lives of everybody, officials and other agents, which get more difficult and complicated every day, as we can all see.
Together, we need a Staff Committee legitimized by the support of 2/3 of the electorate.
Please do make an effort to vote. Better to vote today than to regret not voting tomorrow.
So who is afraid of reaching a quorum?
In our view, there is a simple answer: the enemies of the current form of the civil service of the European Union.
In addition, we believe that the fear of not reaching the exclusion threshold of 5% is playing an important role.
We want a quorum!
It appears that even the Eurocrats (and yes I am one) themselves recognise that they have a comfotable berth, and are thus not agitated enough to vote for one of the five, yes five seperate internal Parliamentary trade unions.
They got their quorum with about an hour to spare
