The International and European Public Services Organisation – is a staff union, founded by staff of the European Central Bank (ECB) to represent the professional interests of persons working for the ECB and of other international institutions and agencies in Germany. IPSO was founded on 11 December 1997. Based in Frankfurt, Germany, IPSO has the legal status of a non‐registered association (nicht eingetragener Verein), according to German Law. The highest governance body is the members assembly. The IPSO Board of Management consists of nine elected members. Associated board members may also participate in IPSO Board meetings. An appointed Secretary General provides continuity of most of the day‐to day processes and of the administration of the organisation. IPSO receives support by an assistant.
IPSO works for the interests of its members in creating and continually improving a European Civil Service devoted to and inspired by the values of the European Union, namely the respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. IPSO wishes to contribute to a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail.
We strive for conditions of employment for our members that live up to highest standards of an international civil service institution. They shall fully reflect and respect the fundamental social rights, International Labour Organisation conventions and the European labour and civil service laws and regulations.
