Dear colleagues,

R&D is always by your side and at your service

We are with you wholeheartedly during this time of health emergency and would like to express our solidarity towards you and your loved ones.

Many of you have already called on us, and we thank you for your trust.

R&D is available 7 days a week to answer all your questions and to provide you with the appropriate solutions as quickly as possible.

Do not hesitate to call on our help by e-mail (OSP-RD@ec.europa.eu) or over the phone : 022965797 ( + weekend), 022977742, 022994728, 022988120, 022990607.

Our legal service always at your disposal

Despite everything, the deadlines for contesting decisions are not on hold. R&D has consistently offered its current and future members free legal consultations, provided by its lawyers. In face of the present situation, these consultations, organized every Thursday, cannot, unfortunately, take place on our premises but our lawyers are still at your disposal. Do not hesitate to send us all your legal questions by e-mail (OSP-RD@ec.europa.eu) and copies to our lawyers (sorlandi@intakt.law / tmartin@intakt.law)

The Union and its lawyers will provide follow-up in order to keep helping you as best as possible.

We are also in regular contact with the administration to submit to it your questions.

R&D more than ever committed to the largest unity of action of the staff representation!

Without prejudice to our flawless handling of individual questions, we are working more than ever to assure the greatest unity of action of the staff representation not only of our institution but also of all other institutions, thanks to our sections of R&D Fédéral, to follow on the evolution, and to propose the best solutions, so that we can collectively manage this difficult period with serenity.

R&D calls for  solidarity

Many of you are sending us proposals for solidarity actions concerning the terrible situation we are experiencing. We fully share your feelings and encourage you to show a spirit of solidarity and generosity as European officials in the common task of facing the current health crisis.

We therefore invite you, in coordination with R&D Federal, to make a contribution to the following organizations, active in Belgium, that are calling for donations : Fonds Erasme et fondation ULB, Croix rouge, Fondation Roi Baudoin. You will find all the details in  the annex .

Take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.
