Judgment No. 1636
The complaint and the applications to intervene are dismissed.
Under dispute is a decision by the Secretary-General to hold new elections for staff representatives on the ITU's Staff Pension Committee. Although "the executive head took the impugned decision not on behalf of the pension fund but in the exercise of the authority he has, or believes he has, to act for the organisation" the Tribunal lacks jurisdiction because the case is about the Secretary-General's failure to observe Article 6 of the Regulations of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.

Though the Tribunal has competence under Article II (3) of its Statute to hear "any complaint of non-observance of the staff pensions regulations or of rules made in virtue thereof", that provision "alludes to the Staff Pension Scheme of the League of Nations".
