11 dicembre - Le budget des écoles européennes est en danger
La Commission a réduit le budget 2015 pour les Ecoles Européennes de trois millions d'euros, jugeant encore une fois de façon unilatérale que certains organismes à Luxembourg ou la Banque Centrale Européenne devaient participer au budget des écoles qui leur sont liées. Cette décision budgétaire a semble-t-il été prise sans considération des conséquences et notamment de l'impact pédagogique qui pourrait s'avérer important... Lire la suite (FR)

11 dicembre  - rejet du recours tendant à l’annulation des décisions de la Commission faisant application à leur égard du règlement (UE) n° 1239/2010 du Conseil, du 20 décembre 2010, adaptant, avec effet au 1er juillet 2010, les rémunérations et les pensions des fonctionnaires et autres agents de l’Union européenne ainsi que les coefficients correcteurs dont sont affectés ces rémunérations et pensions (JO L 338, p. 1), en ce qu’il fixe à 92,3 % le coefficient correcteur applicable à la rémunération du personnel affecté dans la province de Varèse (Italie).

5 Novembre - Union Syndicale sent a Open Letter (in French) to the European Ombudsman(Emily O'Reilly) condemning the practice of "revolving doors" but also "parachutages" (which will not fail to come back strongly with the current reorganization within the Commission).

As a reminder

The “revolving doors” is the phenomenon of staff leaving the EU institutions to take up positions in the private sector, or staff joining the institutions from the private sector. This phenomenon is a growing concern for EU citizens, particularly because of the risk that conflicts of interests may arise. The independence and objectivity of the EU public administration  is vital in terms of building trust on the part of citizens.
