  • Judgment 481


    48th Session, 1982
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    Under the Staff Rules, any unauthorised and unjustified absence from duty shall be charged to special leave without pay. "It is for the administration to determine whether or not an official needs permission to be absent from duty and whether to authorise participation in a staff demonstration during working hours." By warning the association that participation in the demonstration set for the next day [to secure recognition of the association] would be treated as unauthorised and unjustified, the Director-General kept within the bounds of his authority.

  • Judgment 403


    43rd Session, 1980
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "What is not described in the regulations are the facilities which, because of the administration's interest in the efficient working of the staff association, it is now customary for the administration to guarantee or provide. The most important of these is permission for the chairman and other officers of the association to take 'time off' within reasonable limits for the association's work." There are others: the provision of office space, the collection of subscriptions to the association (by deduction with the member's consent of dues from pay).

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    Nothing in the dossier confutes the complainant's repeated assertion that she never took time off without permission. In drawing from the dossier "the conclusion that the complainant had taken the decision that she, and only she, would decide how much time she would devote to her duties and that she did not regard it as necessary to obtain the approval of her supervisor [...] the Director-General drew a conclusion that was clearly mistaken."

    Keywords:

    mistaken conclusion; staff representative; staff union activity; time off; unauthorised absence;

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    The Director-General issued the complainant, the chairman of a staff association not recognised by the organization, instructions concerning time off in two memoranda. The Tribunal believes that the Director drew clearly erroneous conclusions from the dossier. By way of relief the complainant asks for the withdrawal of the documents mentioned from her file. "The Tribunal considers that in this case the quashing of the decision will afford all the relief necessary."

  • Judgment 54


    9th Session, 1961
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    A trade union official should enjoy freedom of action and expression on the condition that he respect the obligations incumbent upon him as an official of the organization and those incumbent upon international officials generally; he should be allowed reasonable time for discharging his functions. "Any decision affecting an official which does not take these rights into account - and, in particular, any measure motivated solely by "any activity carried out by him in that capacity while respecting the obligations enumerated above - would be tainted by an error in law."
