Contract Agents: what does the future hold?

*The presentations from previous events can be found at the bottom of this article.*

Generation 2004, the only staff organisation with all representative staff categories in its team, is here to listen to you and your concerns and to develop together with you our positions on many work- and well-being-at-work- related issues. The Generation 2004 team has made a solid contribution to defend the interests of Contract Agents (CAs), the category of staff with the most uncertain future.

We provide:

  • a strong voice in the Social Dialogue, inter-syndical and internal negotiations, local and central staff committees,
  • permanent administrative assistance: individual sessions on personal and professional issues,
  • clear and useful communication: lunch events, newsletter articles,
  • active assistance with the reclassification process and the Joint Reclassification Committee.

We petitioned the European Parliament (you can still add your signature, please register and sign it!) on the implementation of non-discriminatory employment conditions and career prospects for the non-permanent employees and contract staff at the European institutions. We got 1415 signatures and the response described as-yet-unseen action via the new HR strategy.

If you want to be involved in the discussions, political decisions, please share your opinion with all of us in the very nice and informal environment. Therefore, we have organised some meetings for you!

We would like to invite you to lunchtime meetings dedicated particularly to a CA perspective but everyone is, of course, most welcome to join in!

The Generation 2004 team is taking its principles and beliefs seriously, so kindly make use of this invitation and be vocal about your concerns and ideas for improvement your work conditions!

For any other questions do not hesitate to get in touch or leave a comment below.

If you appreciate our work, please consider becoming a member of Generation 2004

  1. Hi,
    just want to flag that this seminar is taking place on a public holiday (Ispra).
    Will anything be shared after the event with people who cannot attend?
