Open Letter to NCBs on staffing situation at the ECB
IPSO releases an Open Letter to the NCBs on the staffing situation at the ECB
IPSO, the sole trade union recognised at the ECB, has sent an open letter to the National Central Bank governors of the Eurosystem requesting a rectification of the staffing situation at the ECB. 1,000 permanent full time positions should be established to bring the ECB workforce to sound and orderly contracts and offer as many as possible colleagues of the “informal workforce” the chance to get an orderly contract and work perspective. IPSO sees a severe and structural conflict of interest at the highest level of the Eurosystem as the root cause of the deplorable staffing situation. IPSO encourages the governors to address the situation and to respect the spirit of the commitments taken by the European governments when they decided to create the euro.
