schestowitz [SUEPO] Safeguard your rights against the zero adjustment of salaries and pensions in 2022Mar 10 14:15
schestowitzDear colleagues,Mar 10 14:15
schestowitzThe new salary adjustment procedure has caused a loss of purchasing power for all staff and pensioners of the EPO. Its application for 2022 has even resulted in a freeze of salaries and pensions. Looking at the rising cost of living, this zero adjustment - visible in the salary slips and pension statements for January 2022 - is all the more significant.Mar 10 14:15
schestowitz Mar 10 14:15
schestowitzThe Central Bureau of SUEPO considers the salary adjustment procedure and its implementation for 2022 illegal. Please find in the attachment a model Request for Review (RfR) for active staff and a model RfR for pensioners so that you can safeguard your rights. Even if you already opposed the adjustment in January 2021 using the templates provided by SUEPO, it is advisable to take action again now. The exception clause causing the zero adjustment Mar 10 14:15
schestowitzhas been applied for the first time.Mar 10 14:15
schestowitz    DOWNLOAD RfR for active employeesMar 10 14:15
schestowitz    DOWNLOAD RfR for pensioners Mar 10 14:16
schestowitzIn order to safeguard your rights, you should file the RfR by 15 March 2022 by following the instructions below:Mar 10 14:16

Techrights-secSpafford and many others also backed down over the years and one of the moreMar 10 15:10
Techrights-secharmful turns has been the folding of the EFF.  Mar 10 15:10
schestowitz-TR2when I see eff links I nowadays get all cynical and/or scepticaslMar 10 15:11
schestowitz-TR2because either they hit thew wrong issueMar 10 15:11
schestowitz-TR2or take a position which does not make senseMar 10 15:11
schestowitz-TR2or bothMar 10 15:11
Techrights-secackMar 10 15:11
Techrights-secI figure they were planning on deposing Barlow when he up and died anyway.Mar 10 15:11
schestowitz-TR2think began to sour while he was still there and healthyMar 10 15:12
schestowitz-TR2wrong HR decisionsMar 10 15:12
schestowitz-TR2then, friend-brings-a-friend magnifies the issueMar 10 15:12
Techrights-secYEs, infiltration that way.  Mar 10 15:13
Techrights-secFor the most part, the EFF appears rudderless.  That was probably one of the   Mar 10 15:13
Techrights-secgoals, so that it stopped addressing the purposes it was founded for.  Mar 10 15:13
schestowitz-TR2Or, as one can see in the FSF,  there is fear associating with tackling key issuesMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2but let me set that aside for a momentMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2and try to trace back the modus operandiMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2I think you hire some people who do not care about the orgMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2they can be branded as enrichingMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2e.g. to the imageMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2but not of substance associated with goalsMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2nor qualifiedMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2then they bring in money nfrom the wrong partyMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2like mozilla or LFMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2then yoiu become depoendent on that moneyMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2or else you lose staff, so they fight to keep the moneyMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2this gives them powerMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2e.g. Wim wanting to say why he quit MicrosoftMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2surely oracles did not offer him more moneyuMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2they could do that to prevent him leavingMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2so he saw something at microsoftMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2but now, inside LF board, if he speaks outMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2Microsoft can turn around and asay, remove wimMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2or we stop paying linux foundaitoon and retaliate in other nways toMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2e.g. through shithubMar 10 15:17
schestowitz-TR2linus was never supposed to let these chaions of idiots form power around kernel.oirgMar 10 15:18
schestowitz-TR2not it is too lateMar 10 15:18
schestowitz-TR2they have him by the b0llsMar 10 15:18
Techrights-secsounds about rightMar 10 15:18
Techrights-secLT can *maybe* still take his trademark and walk.  It'd be a big deal and a lotMar 10 15:18
Techrights-secof work but maybe less of a problem for him than if he stays on and continuesMar 10 15:18
Techrights-secbeing marginalized further every month.  Mar 10 15:18
schestowitz-TR2the media would blast him (you can imagine poissible angles)Mar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2he does not control the mediaMar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2so it would undermine whatever his reasons (stated)Mar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2and goalsMar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2the media can misrepresent himMar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2maybe some "old" thing or "man" thingMar 10 15:20
schestowitz-TR2with RMS they can choose more political anglesMar 10 15:20
Techrights-secWith MIT, they had a lot of their own dirt to distract from not just Bill'sMar 10 15:21
schestowitz-TR2LT was reduced to almost clerical role, "Release Manager"Mar 10 15:21
schestowitz-TR2he does not pay a big role in decisions Mar 10 15:21
schestowitz-TR2things like rust are for gulag and its proxy groups to makeMar 10 15:21
schestowitz-TR2LT just signs offMar 10 15:21
Techrights-secNope.  That was a reason for their deposing him.  Mar 10 15:22
Techrights-secRubberstamp mostly, if things are as they look. Mar 10 15:22
schestowitz-TR2I keep forgetting (should memorise this) the proxy group created to paint rust as a "security" thingMar 10 15:23
schestowitz-TR2as nobody would oppose security, esp. not when media portrays even local priv escalationMar 10 15:24
schestowitz-TR2like the equivalent of Windows botnetsMar 10 15:24
Techrights-sec"security" has been the go-to excuse of microsofters, especially when theyMar 10 15:24

schestowitz-TR2do you have video topic suggestions? (I might as well ask)Mar 10 19:21
Techrights-secthanksMar 10 19:21
Techrights-secnot at the moment, there was a video link yesterday about softwareMar 10 19:21
Techrights-secpatents in the 3D community.  It was long but it is full of mistakes andMar 10 19:21
Techrights-secmisframings, so might provide fodder for a long time.  Mar 10 19:21
Techrights-secThere was another one by Braxman which was very well done and showed a rather Mar 10 19:21
Techrights-secthorough understanding of copyright, software freedom, and licensing, but Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-seche appeared to intentionally misuse terminology.  Perhaps that was to reachMar 10 19:22
Techrights-seca different audience.  Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-secThe M$ clown show, OSI, can be observed in action these days.  Similar Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-secastroturfers and their catspaws are still trying to derail the FSF.Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-sec.. as seen on the LibrePlanet list among other places. Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-secThe braxman one is really quite good if one listens to the definitions he Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-secexpands on.  Therefore I think he has misapplied the terminology intentionallyMar 10 19:22
Techrights-secbut not out of malice.  Mar 10 19:22
Techrights-secackMar 10 19:22
Techrights-secno need to address either directly but the can be used to find point to addressMar 10 19:22

schestowitz-TR2doing a video bout a video is VERY difficultMar 10 19:22
schestowitz-TR2I think I do not even need to explain why :-DMar 10 19:22

Techrights-secmostly I wait for the logsMar 10 19:34
schestowitz-TR2iurc was a massively important investment for usMar 10 19:35
schestowitz-TR2if you look aroiund at blogs, esp. patent and linux ones, they barely get comments anymoreMar 10 19:35
schestowitz-TR2and social contreol media no longer makes up for itMar 10 19:35
schestowitz-TR2those are dead ends and make it hard to have meaningful conversations due to delays and UI shittinessMar 10 19:35
Techrights-secyes, people realize the others had turned to shilling Mar 10 19:36
Techrights-secthe readers fully abandoned them at that pointMar 10 19:36
Techrights-secit looks like the patent lobby is putting in a minimal investment in say-for-payMar 10 19:36
