Judgment No. 838
THE COMPLAINTS AND THE APPLICATIONS TO INTERVENE ARE DISMISSED.
The complainants object to the FAO's adoption of a new scale to determine pensionable remuneration whose effect was to lower their pension entitlements. They submit that the application of certain provisions in the Staff Regulations and Staff Rules is in breach of their acquired rights and the rule against retroactivity. "Their complaints will [...] be receivable only if the application of those Regulations and Rules [causes] them injury. The Tribunal concludes from the material rules that it does not."
