ILO: “EPO Threaten(s) the Ability of the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO to Serve All Other Organizations”

Summary: Highlighting a new document from the Governing Body of the International Labour Organization (ILO), which is obviously not happy with the way EPO treats its own staff as well as ILOAT (ILO's Administrative Tribunal)

AT Battistelli's EPO suicides continue as it is a horrible place to work in and those who find themselves in conflict, e.g. subjected to false allegations from the management, are in serious trouble that can potentially end their career for good. The EPO's bunk 'justice' continues even after ILO demanded that this should be stopped.



“...the Director-General is of the view that the level of litigation generated within the European Patent Office still represents a challenge for the smooth functioning of the Tribunal.”
      --ILO
"The Governing Body of the ILO confirms the existence of serious problems with the EPO's internal appeals system for dealing with staff grievances," a source told us recently. The following document was recently posted on the official website of the ILO:

Programme, Financial and Administrative Section

Matters relating to the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO: Update on discussions with the European Patent Organisation on possible future action to improve the Tribunal’s caseload



The summary says: "As requested by the Governing Body at its 326th Session (March 2016), this paper contains a progress report on the discussions with the European Patent Office with a view to identifying a solution to the difficulties caused by the number of complaints which are filed by officials against the European Patent Organisation (EPO) and which threaten the ability of the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO to serve all other organizations (see the draft decision in paragraph 8)."

“...it is noted that the European Patent Office has not yet made known its views on the feasibility of establishing an internal first instance tribunal – as it has been suggested – which would limit significantly the number of cases brought before the Tribunal.”
      --ILO
Here is the link to the document itself [PDF]. We have made a local copy [PDF] just in case the original vanishes (anything is possible when a thug like Battistelli is involved, as they already censored SUEPO by threats and attempted to do the same to us using repeated legal threats)

According to point number 1: "1. This report has been prepared in response to the Governing Body’s decision in March 2016 which requested the Director-General to actively pursue the discussions with the European Patent Organisation (EPO) with a view to identifying a practicable solution to the difficulties experienced by the Administrative Tribunal of the International Labour Organization (the Tribunal) owing to the large volume of complaints filed by officials of the European Patent Office, the EPO’s secretariat, and to present an updated report to its 329th Session (March 2017) at the latest."

Claude RouillerAccording to point number 7: "7. Although over the past year the European Patent Office appears to have set in motion a certain number of initiatives aimed at facilitating the appeasement of current tensions and the improvement of industrial relations, the Director-General is of the view that the level of litigation generated within the European Patent Office still represents a challenge for the smooth functioning of the Tribunal. Finally, it is noted that the European Patent Office has not yet made known its views on the feasibility of establishing an internal first instance tribunal – as it has been suggested – which would limit significantly the number of cases brought before the Tribunal."

When will the tyranny of the EPO end? When will Claude Rouiller (ILOAT), as shown on the right, stop being treated like a clown by Battistelli? If Battistelli believes he is not legally bound even by ILO, then maybe it's time to send Battistelli himself to some tribunal somewhere, perhaps at The Hague.

We are soon going to show how ILOAT itself has knowingly provided insufficient safeguards to EPO staff, including staff with disabilities. There is simply no justice for EPO workers, neither at the EPO's kangaroo courts nor at ILOAT, which the Dutch High Court erroneously believed had these things under control. What we have here is systemic or institutional failure at multiple levels, stretching from the EPO to ILO and to the Dutch courts if not Dutch or even EU governance. Is this a re-enactment of the Soviet Union?
