    103rd Session, 2007
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    The complainant, a former President of the Staff Council, asks the Tribunal to declare null and void the extraordinary general assembly session and the ensuing Staff Council election. "Article II of the Tribunal's Statute [...] requires that the complainant's claim for annulment of the election of the new Staff Council be dismissed. So too must his claim that a new election be conducted without delay by a neutral body (see Judgment 78). Such rights as the complainant has in relation to the affairs of the Staff Association and the Staff Council derive from the Statutes of the Staff Association. They do not concern the terms of his appointment, the applicable Staff Regulations or those general principles of law applicable to international civil servants."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Under dispute is a decision by the Secretary-General to hold new elections for staff representatives on the ITU's Staff Pension Committee. Although "the executive head took the impugned decision not on behalf of the pension fund but in the exercise of the authority he has, or believes he has, to act for the organisation" the Tribunal lacks jurisdiction because the case is about the Secretary-General's failure to observe Article 6 of the Regulations of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.

    Pan American Health Organization

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    the question of the candidacy of a staff member for the office of director of the organization must be resolved by the staff regulations. "they might forbid staff members from standing as candidates or restrict their activities if they do stand. but, in the absence of an express regulation, a staff member is entitled to think that he is bound only by those standards of propriety to be observed by the candidates generally; otherwise the electoral processes would be unfair."

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    "while a candidate who is standing against an incumbent director must be free to criticise in moderate language his opponent's record, it may well be argued, as it is in this case, that his proclaimed opposition to the director who is re-elected may interfere with fruitful co-operation. so an assessment that was objective and unprejudiced might have arrived at the same conclusion as the director's [on the basis of which the complainant's contract was not renewed]." however the tribunal held that decision to be biased.

  • Judgment 274


    36th Session, 1976
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    the elections were postponed by the election and referendum committee following an intervention by the director-general. "whatever may be the power under the staff regulations, the statutes, which are the ... committee's only source of authority, required quite clearly that the election should be held in january. the committee may have believed that the director-general's prerogative enabled him to dispense them from observance of the statutes, but they cannot ... have supposed that their action would not meet with criticism and even indignation."

    Considerations 11 and 12

    Extract:

    on the eve of the elections, the director-general sought assurances from the election and referendum committee concerning the participation of regional members, in particular as regards their nomination of candidates. "any intervention by an employer with the processes by which his employees elect the representatives who will have to negotiate with him is a delicate matter even when he has a clear 'locus standi'." in the instant case, it is doubtful whether the director-general had such a right.

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "On the submission that the elections held on [...] by the staff association should be declared void by the Administrative Tribunal: no provision of its Statute, and in particular Article II, empowers the Administrative Tribunal to adjudicate on such a submission."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    The powers of the Director-General as regards the staff association are governed by the organization's regulations. "None of these regulations empowers the Director-General to invalidate elections held [by the association] to form its executive committee on the ground that such elections were irregular [...]. Hence, by refusing to invalidate the elections [...] the Director-General, far from violating the Staff Regulations and Rules, applied them correctly."
