Judgment No. 1699
The complaint is dismissed.
"The Tribunal does not accept that a request for review precludes a negotiated settlement. There is no reason why a staff member cannot keep to the time limit laid down by the Staff Regulations and Rules and at the same time negotiate. And he will be in a stronger negotiating position if he has lodged a timely appeal."
