Let us take a closer look as some of the technical details. The Executive Committee is composed of 28 members who are elected by secret ballot, by institution, for a period of 3 years. It is therefore responsible, in particular, for organising income and expenditure according to the guidelines laid down by the General Assembly and for ensuring that its decisions are implemented.
Over the past two years, the COVID pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives: our working conditions are changing, with some institutions trying hot-desking or flexitime, coupled with teleworking… In short, the world of work is changing, and in order to guarantee fair working conditions that are adapted to all staff, Union Syndicale Brussels is stepping in!
Through regular consultation of its members, and through a wide range of expertise thanks to its many representatives, active across most institutions, USB protects your rights but is also an actor in social dialogue with the administration.
The next Executive Committee election will take place this year and we are looking to you! Do you want to be part of a dynamic and meaningful trade union project? Are you convinced that the European civil service should represent all its staff, regardless of their contractual status, gender or ethnic background? Do you want to get involved in defending the rights and working conditions of your colleagues? Then take that step and make a difference! The Executive Committee needs your expertise and commitment. You can stand as a candidate for your institution. To do so, you must:
- Be a member of USB for at least 6 months (at the date of the General Assembly where the elections are launched).
- Stand as a candidate and campaign to be elected.
- Collect as many votes as possible from USB members in your institution in order to be elected and win one of the seats allocated to your section.
