The Effects of ILO and the EPO on Disability

Guy Ryder Guy Ryder, Director-General of ILO



Summary: A bunch of tweets with documents in them, berating both ILO and the EPO for mistreatment and further harm to EPO workers with disabilities

THERE are numerous Twitter accounts that belong to EPO employees. We sometimes mention those*. In fact, we have just done an article about the most dishonest Twitter account, the official account of the EPO and thus the management's mouthpiece. It's a verified account with plenty of fake "followers" (it still seems to be buying some).



Someone amongst our readers who are past and present EPO staff told us about this Twitter account, which judging by the posts (tweets) belongs to an EPO person. It helps highlight the effect of ILO's inability or unwillingness to rein in, inhibiting the EPO's abuses. Here are some among many tweets (there are just over a thousand), starting with older ones:

We are going to keep an eye on this account for further updates. It captures the misfortune worker have had, having worked at the EPO for a long time only to be mistreated and illegally punished (after Battistelli had finished exploiting them).

We have, thus far, heard from about half a dozen EPO workers with health problems. These range from depression to chronic illnesses (sometimes disabilities). These are not rare cases; as we pointed out earlier this year, 40% of EPO workers have Upper Limb Disorder (ULD). It's a taboo subject in Battistelli's EPO. _____ * They are typically anonymous accounts because of the atmosphere of intimidation -- further exacerbated by illegal surveillance -- at the EPO.
