Judgment No. 1979
THE COMPLAINTS ARE DISMISSED.
"Consistent precedent holds that, since judgments carry the authority of res judicata only for the parties to a dispute (see Judgment 1935 [...]), complainants may not put forward claims for the whole staff, but only for themselves. The complaints are irreceivable insofar as they address the position of persons who are not parties to this suit."

"The rule against retroactivity prevents an organisation from applying retroactively to staff a rule which is unfavourable to them. In order to determine whether a measure is unfavourable its overall effects must be assessed."
