Judgment No. 1603
The complaints are dismissed.
The International Civil Service Commission "may make recommendations for aligning conditions of service in the common system and may decide on the methods of determining them. Yet the staff may still challenge any action by that body, independent though it be of the organisation that employs them. [...] So the complainants may challenge the lawfulness of the Commission's method [...] even though the FAO has done no more than fall in line."
