Judgment No. 2095
1. THE DECISIONS REJECTING THE COMPLAINANTS' APPEALS OF 2 FEBRUARY 2000 ARE SET ASIDE.
2. THE CASE IS SENT BACK TO THE AUTHORITY, WHICH SHALL REVIEW THEIR REMUNERATION SINCE 1 JANUARY 1999, IN ACCORDANCE WITH CONSIDERATION 14.
3. THE AUTHORITY SHALL PAY THE COMPLAINANTS A TOTAL AMOUNT OF 6,000 EUROS IN COSTS.
The complainants challenge a decision taken by the Committee of Representatives of the Member States concerning salary adjustments. The organisation submits that the complaints are irreceivable since it is not the author of that decision. "The complainants are paid by [the organisation] and so may challenge any individual decisions that affect their terms of employment, particularly salary, regardless of who has authority over such decisions."
