schestowitzBeautiful confirmation of the Battistelli abuses in the EPO.Jul 16 08:18
schestowitzHowever, the big question is what is going to happen next.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzNormally the respective Circulars should be declared null and void and the office should redeem the money charged illegally from the staff. Mr. Battistelli is not in the EPO any more so he cannot be held to account but there are other enablers that could, and should be made responsible. The first matter is legal, the second one moral, so I expect at least the first one to be solved satisfactorily. I´m very curious to see how this plays out …Jul 16 08:19

schestowitzGuess why Karlsruhe just rejected a complaint in the UPC proceedings by a company who claimed they could not get a “review” in court. EPO is above the Law, cannot bé brought to court, and the German judges are protecting them.Jul 16 08:19

schestowitzThat Napoleon 4th abused his power in various ways should not come as surprise.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzHis attacks on staff representatives have also been criticised in various cases before the ILO-AT and Union members had to be re-integrated or restored in their previous salary levels.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzYou just have to remember the way Napoleon 4th blatantly disregarded the separation of powers in that he refused a member of the boards to access the building to realise that it was not only in the matter of strikes that his influence was harmful.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzR 19/12 and G 2301/16 led to R 12a-d and to the exile of the BA to the suburbs of Munich (lease 15 years), by which not even the perception of independence of the BA was increased.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzWe ended up with a chair of the BA who is no more than a puppet on the strings of the president. Just looking at the saga of Art 15aRPBA and G 1/21 says enough.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzHis successor seems even worse in a lot of aspects. He has not contributed to restore social peace at the EPO in the slightest.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzIronically he has decided with the help of the chair of the BA that the latter BA will come back to Building VIII. But like examiners, members of the BA will not be allocated a specific room, not even a specific desk. Examiners will be pushed into open space offices in order to squeeze as much as possible the few staff members allowed to come into the office.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzWith his New Normal he wants an EPO 2.0 without any legal basis in the EPC as it stands. But as this representatives in G 1/21 had the nerve to say that the EPC can be amended by way of secondary legislation as has been shown in G 3/19.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzThe next planned budget provides 6 Millions of Euros to get legal advice against the staff!Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzAll this would not have been possible without the AC’s complicity. The AC should control the president and the tail should not be wagging the dog. But in Eponia everything is possible if the president wants it. But as Mao is meant to have said once: the fish rots from the head! EPO is a superb example of this!Jul 16 08:19

schestowitzThe worse is that the Chair of the AC in 2016 then became VP 5 Legal and International Affairs when the present head of the EPO took office. In other words, he just wanted a cushy job with a lot of money and perks before retiring for good.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzSimilarly, the head of the Hungarian delegation became PD 5 Legal affairs and. for instance, played an obnoxious role during the OP in G 1/21. Rumour has it that he could become the next head of the EPO!Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzNo wonder the AC is a puppet on the strings of the EPO upper management and that the tail is wagging the dog.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzBoth VP5 and PD 5.1 have failed to contribute in the slightest to restoring social peace at the EPO. Both are at the origin of the budgeting provision of 6 Millions of Euros to get legal advice against the staff!Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzPoor EPO to have to do with such incompetent people. It is not their competence, and neither that of the past and present heads of the EPO, which brought them in the position they are in. It is nepotism as best as it can be.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzAll those people have no idea about the work carried out by those bringing in the money, especially the examiners, but they know best how it has to be done and under which conditions, e.g. 5 years contracts, or open space offices for the few allowed to work part-time on the premises of the EPO. They also know best what form OP should take outside the pandemic. It makes one want to puke.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzBetween the tenure of a post in the AC and a job within EPO a cooling off period of two years should be set up. This would correspond to the cooling off period required from former members of the BA once they leave for pension or are not reappointed. Do what I tell you, but do not do what I do. Hypocrisy at its best. But this cannot come as a surprise.Jul 16 08:19
schestowitzI am truly worried about the future of all the new representatives recently coming on the list. With the quality steadily going down, not officially, but internal key indicators are more than eloquent in this respect, one wonders what the future of the EP system will be.Jul 16 08:19

schestowitzCircular No 347 – The immense responsibility of the President Campinos.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzWhile it is true that the unlawfull Circular No 347 was implemented by former President Battistelli, its application to staff was maintained for another three years by President Campinos.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzMr Campinos took up Office on 1 July 2018. He was immediately informed of the illegality of Circular No 347. At that time, all appeals concerning “strike” were pending internally at the EPO. Mr Campinos had the opportunity to stop this unlawfull circular and prevent the cases from going to the ILOAT.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzIn July / September 2019, he decided to reject one by one as unfounded all the appeals concerning “strike”. For example, judgement 3340 indicates: ”By decisions of 16 September 2019, the Vice-President of Directorate-General 4 (DG4), by delegation of power from the President, rejected the appeals as irreceivable and, in any event, unfounded. “Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzReading Circular No 347, one might say: How could this be?Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzIndeed, for any European citizen, it is obvious that this circular is unlawfull.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzHow could Mr. Campinos not have seen it?Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzIt should also be remembered that Mr. Campinos is assisted by a team of high-level lawyers.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzAre all these jurists also totally incompetent and fail to see that Circular No 347 is unlawfull?Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzThe answer is elsewhere.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzObviously, Mr. Campinos always knew that Circular No 347 is unlawfull.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzHe did not stop it because it is a fantatic management tool.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzCircular No 347 gave him the opportunity to implement new unpopular reforms between 2018-2021 without social dialogue and without risking a strike.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzMr. Campinos is the EPO’s problem, not the solution.Jul 16 08:20

schestowitzone of those...Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzJULY 15, 2021 AT 6:53 PMJul 16 08:20
schestowitzThe question for ILO-AT will be, whether all reforms implemented since introduction of circular 347 are unlawful, as staff was denied their right to strike.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzBut with the appeals and complaints rules as they are, ILO-AT will not even start discussing those topics.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzREPLYJul 16 08:20
schestowitzEven ILOAT could not disregard this.Jul 16 08:20

schestowitzJULY 15, 2021 AT 10:50 PMJul 16 08:20
schestowitzIt is very rare that ILO-AT is deciding as it has done here.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzIt is only when the situation is overwhelmingly clear that it will react.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzThe ILO-AT is merely checking whether the rules have been properly applied. It will never question those rules.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzIn this respect ILO-AT a court to which staff members can address when some measures are against common sense and sanity, but not to decide of the validity of regulations as such. This is the biggest problem staff faces.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzNot only the strike regulations are obnoxious, it is the whole set-up. A career at the EPO is not something just for a few years, but offering only 5 years contracts will not allow to recruit people with some experience. Only offering 5 years contracts is as well a means to keep staff under control. If one tries to say something the risk of being fired is much to high, so that they will keep quite.Jul 16 08:20
schestowitzThe present incompetent management behaves like in the 19th century. The boss is always right, and with its immunity it thinks it can do what it wants. Immunity does not mean impunity! What those people are doing is playing with the lives and the well being of staff, as if staff would be their servants. This has to stop!Jul 16 08:21
