CHAPTER XI

GENERAL  PROVISIONS

Regulation XI.2                      Appointed staff of the Union standing for election or elected to an elected official post

1           a)       An appointed staff member of the Union standing for election to one of the elected official posts referred to, respectively, in Article 9 of the Constitution and Article 2 of the Convention of the Union (Geneva, 1992) shall automatically be placed on special leave without pay by the Secretary-General, in accordance with Regulation 5.2 of the Staff Regulations and Staff Rules for appointed staff, with effect from the day following the date of submission of his candidature to the Secretary-General.

   b)      i)       If the appointed staff member is not elected, the period of his special leave without pay shall come to an end not later than five working days following the date on which the     Plenipotentiary Conference completed the election for the elected official post in question, in order to enable him to resume his duties at Union headquarters upon expiry of his special leave.

                      ii)      If he is elected, the period of his special leave without pay shall end on the day following his election, so as to enable him to participate in the work of the Conference as a member of its secretariat.

    c)       Apart from those expenses incurred under the circumstances referred to in b) ii) above, which shall be borne by the Union, no other expenses incurred by an appointed staff member in connection with his candidature for an elected official post shall be borne by the Union.

2           a)       An appointed staff member who has been elected to a post of elected official of the Union by a Plenipotentiary Conference must resign from his post as appointed staff member. This  resignation shall take effect not later than the day preceding the date of entry on duty as an elected official, as determined by the Plenipotentiary Conference.

             b)      Although three months’ notice of resignation is normally required for staff appointed on a permanent basis, and thirty days for staff appointed on a temporary basis, the Secretary‑General shall be bound to accept a shorter period of notice from an elected official to take account to the date of entry on duty set by the Plenipotentiary Conference for the elected official post (see a) above).

             c)       The resignation of an appointed staff member following his election to an elected official post shall be subject to the relevant provisions of the Staff Regulations and Staff Rules for appointed staff, with due regard, where applicable, to the conditions of service set forth in his letter of appointment.

3           As regards the contractual status of an elected official, periods of service as an appointed staff member and periods of service as an elected official shall be taken into account in calculating length of service for the purposes of sick leave, annual leave, home leave, maternity leave, compensation for death, termination indemnity and repatriation grant. Length of service shall be understood to be the total period during which such an official has been in continuous and full-time service with the Union. Any periods of prior service for which indemnities due at the time of a separation from service have already been paid shall not be taken into account in the above-mentioned calculations.
