Expressed appreciation of the value of engagement and representation of staff federations in the relevant inter-agency mechanisms.
Took note of the views expressed by the Committee with regard to exploring options for:
a. Identifying alternative funding approaches for elected officials’ positions, including those based on membership fees;
b. Reviewing functions and composition of FICSA secretariat, and well as the possibility of providing its services from a low cost duty station;
c. Identifying solutions for all three Staff Federations for a more cost-efficient collaboration on coordination matters.
Agreed to establish a small working group under the leadership of UNESCO, with staff representatives and representatives of interested organizations, to develop proposals for HLCM’s consideration at its spring 2016 session.
