Judgment No. 1093
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
At the time of his promotion to grade P.2 the complainant held a permanent appointment at grade G.5, as well as a fixed-term appointment at grade G.7 while drawing a special post allowance corresponding to P.2. The Tribunal holds that because he had never had a permanent appointment at G.7 his promotion was from G.5 to P.2.

The ITU's policy is to guarantee, for staff promoted from the general service to the professional category, that the salary differential resulting from the promotion and during the year following it, as calculated in local currency, will be equivalent to at least one step in the new grade. For that purpose the Union carries out a review of the official's pay on the first anniversary of promotion, known as the "anniversary calculation". The complainant was promoted from grade G.5 to P.2. The difference between his earnings during the year after his promotion to P.2 and the amount he would have earned during the same period at G.5 being greater than a P.2 increment, there was no breach of the material rule.
