With the start of the Ursula von der Leyen Commission on December 1st 2019, Johannes HAHN also took up his appointment as the new Commissioner for Budget and Administration. This appointment concerns staff enormously since he is in charge of Administration, which includes HR policy.
On 16 January, Generation 2004 sent a welcome letter (EN version) to Mr. Hahn. In this letter, we not only welcomed the Commissioner but we have also raised some of the most important aspects of our policies as a staff representation organisation:
- the principle of equal pay for equal work at the same place and;
- the heavy decline of the conditions of employment and the consequent increase of the precariat for some categories of staff.
We closed the letter by offering Commissioner HAHN to constructively and positively work with him on these and other staff related matters.
