schestowitzriters do not make their living writing books. We create and license intellectual [sic] property [sic]. Ignorance of copyright is rife throughout both writing and open source folks. I’ve given up discussing copyright with technology folks, because the misconceptions are so broadly and deeply entrenched. If you’re making your living with words, though, you must understand copyright. For folks in the US, I recommend Nolo Press’ Apr 21 09:14

schestowitzOn 15 December 2020, 1.448 employees representing 22,6% of all staff participated in a strike. It is the highest result of an industrial action since 2016 and a clear signal to the President that there is room for improvement in terms of social peace.Apr 21 23:02
schestowitzIn the January 2021 salary slip, the Office deducted 1/20th of a monthly’s salary for a whole day of strike (instead of 1/30th) or 1/40th for half a day of strike (instead of 1/60th). The excessive strike deductions are already the subject of complaints which are pending in front of the Tribunal.Apr 21 23:02
schestowitzIn an open letter to Mr Campinos on 28 January 2021, SUEPO has requested a confirmation that the outcome of the judgment will apply to all staff who went on strike since the new strike regulations were put in place, namely since 1 July 2013. In his reply of 24 February 2021, Mr Campinos wrote that “the Office considers it not opportune to make any commitment at this stage and prefers to await the Tribunal’s judgements on the Apr 21 23:02
schestowitzpending cases”.Apr 21 23:02
schestowitzTherefore, in order to safeguard their rights, affected staff members must challenge the excessive strike deductions by filing a request for review at the latest on 25 April 2021 as follows:Apr 21 23:02
schestowitz    Fill in the Word template with your personal data and date on the first page and your signature on the last page,Apr 21 23:02
schestowitz    Convert the filled in RfR into a PDF,Apr 21 23:02
schestowitz    Retrieve your salary slip of January 2021 from MyFips (MyFips -> Salaries and Allowances -> Salary slip)Apr 21 23:02
schestowitz    Send your filled in RfR PDF together with your salary slip by email AND the annex CA/D 5/13 with request for acknowledgment of receipt to managementreview@epo.orgApr 21 23:02
schestowitzPlease keep a copy of the email you sent and of the PDFs in your paper archives and electronic archives. These documents will be necessary later for filing an internal appeal and for filing a complaint in front of ILOAT.Apr 21 23:02
schestowitzA decision from the President is then due two months after filing the request for review. In case of a rejection, you will then have three months to file an internal appeal.Apr 21 23:02
