Judgment No. 2279
The complaint is dismissed, as is the UPU's claim that the complainant be ordered to pay costs.
Consideration 4 (b)
As regards receivability of a complaint challenging an administrative circular, "A distinction needs to be drawn [...] between instructions whose purpose is to tell the Administration how to apply the law, which have no direct bearing on the legal status of staff members, and administrative decisions which impose obligations on staff themselves, particularly decisions affecting an indeterminate number of staff." (in this case, it was an administrative circular dealing with the introduction of an electronic system for recording the attendance of staff members)
