R&D was founded in 1992, and immediately announced its ambition; the renewal of trade union action.
R&D conducts its activities in a spirit of opening, encouraging dialogue not only with members, but with non-members as well.
Out of a concern for transparency, elected officers, members, sympathisers – in fact, all colleagues – are invited to attend meetings of the R&D Executive Committee.
R&D bases its actions on :
- a whole-hearted and coherent defence of the European civil service
- active involvement in staff represent
- direct, genuine dialogue with staff.
