Decision concerning the update on the decisions taken by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) at its 85th Session regarding the post adjustment index for Geneva

Record of decisions | 23 March 2018

The Governing Body:

(a) took note of the legal issues, risks and serious shortcomings associated with consultations on, and the implementation of, the results of the 2016 cost-of-living survey in respect of the duty station Geneva; and

(b) requested the Office to continue to actively engage with the ICSC at its 86th Session and beyond, with the objective of reforming the post adjustment and other salary survey methodologies, and ensure that the new methodology is applied for any post adjustments. The reform process should guarantee the full involvement of the UN workers’ federations and respect basic principles of social dialogue.
