Welcome to the 2 June 2020 Generation 2004 Newsletter.
Slow steps to return to the office are now being taken. Generation 2004 took the time to propose a staff-safety-first confinement exit strategy for the Commission and the EEAS, including Delegations.
Alongside, our petition for Covid-19 special leave for parents with young children has attracted almost 2000 signatures (THANK YOU!!!) and saw our request for a Social Dialogue (SD) meeting addressed in record time. The meeting is on Wednesday 3 June and we would like to invite you to still sign the petition here so that we can go there with a response over the 2000 mark!
We would also like to introduce you to the latest update of the teleworking guidelines that came into force last week.
For colleagues in EU Delegations to third countries, the Common Front of trade unions and professional staff associations launched the 2021 complaint for annual leave following. Join the action here (deadline is tomorrow 3 June 2020 at 23:00 Brussels time), and read our past article for more information on the matter.
Finally, not directly related to Covid-19 but maybe relevant to you if you booked time-credits for the summer period and want to cancel them, we approach and explain this often-unknown type of leave.
