Colleagues: take the floor and defend your rights!

This is really the last step in order to be heard!

Be all present on 4 March…

By its leaflet of 15 February, R&D denounced the practices of services, namely DG DIGIT, regarding the implementation of open-plan office.

Many of you have thanked us for the effort to defend your rights and the compliance with procedures.

R&D welcomes the decision of DG DIGIT to finally open, in a structured way, discussions with its staff about the planned move to the “Black Pearl” building and the granting of the workspace.

We strongly encourage all colleagues to participate in the meeting scheduled for Friday 4 March so that you can defend your rights and get the answers you need!

To do so, we remind you that according to Regulation on the establishment of “open-plan office” – Lodging Manual No. 2, Article 3(5) – “any open-plan office implementation project should be subject to an internal preliminary study within the ap­plicant DG in association with the staff concerned, in particular to check compatibility of tasks with an open-plan office en­vironment.

It is important to remember that the space allocated to each shall be in accordance with the tasks performed by taking into account various aspects such as confidentiality, external contacts and the need for concentration …, as well as your health, if applicable.

R&D remains at your disposal to bring you all the support and assistance you will need during this exercise.
