Degradation of Working Conditions in sight in the New Black Pearl Building
The removal of DIGIT to the new Black Pearl building, rue Montoyer 15, is forseen for the first quarter of 2016.
The administration has already arranged open spaces for 600 persons with an area of 7 square meters per person, which is far, far away from the “normal” space per person, currently 10 m². According to the standards of the Housing Conditions Manual, this building should not accommodate less than 300 persons in personal office.
R&D formally objects to this project and appeals to all colleagues to the greatest vigilance.
Peal peril for passengers of the Black Pearl
Even in the European Parliament President Schulz has thwarted the Secretary General’s plans to introduce open space.
We ask the director and heads of unit to think carefully and read the reference book on the subject: “L’open space m’a tuer” (Alexandre des Isnards).
