Sharing #jobopportunities with the United Nations 🇺🇳 Resident Coordinators system.

I have finally opened up old boxes with FSSU/FSU archives that I had shipped from UNTSO HQ to UNLB at the end of my second term as President of FSSU/FSU in 2003, they had been shipped to Mr. Ronald Hall who was the then FSSU President and the first FSSU President to take office in UNLB.

...The boxes with archives have never really been examined for their historical value in order to decide to scan and archive some of the documentation for posterity. I have just started opening up some of the boxes and have found some very interesting materials.

Attached is a document that dates back to 1979, when the UN was on the cusp of creating the “Staff Management Coordinating Committee” due to various staff/management relational issues. The first few pages is an opening statement by the then Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim, the rest of the document outlines proposals for the establishment of the SMCC and changes to the UN’s rules and regulations.

You will note that some of the themes in the SG’s statement are very much aligned with current reforms in particular in relation to decentralization and delegations of authority.

Proof, that indeed, history repeats itself!

We were very pleased today to be able to personally hand the UNFSU Long Service Medal and Certificate to Mr. Martin Peace.

Mr. Martin Peace has retired on 31 March 2021 after a long (more than 30 years) and distinguished career in the United Nations. His last mission was UNISFA where he ...was on assignment from UNGSC where he served for many years.

He received the “gold” medal for 30 Years of service, at a “socially distant” and short ceremony in the UNFSU Executive offices in the UNGSC in Brindisi, Italy.

We congratulate Martin and wish him a very happy, healthy, and long retirement.

“The problem of the UN is that our multilateralism has no teeth,” Guterres told VICE News. “Our power in the UN is the power of persuasion, is the power of speaking up, is the power of denouncing what needs to be denounced. But we cannot order countries to do what they must do.”

Excellent news that US sanctions against @IntlCrimCourt personnel have been removed by @POTUS.

The ICC’s mission to ensure accountability for human rights violations worldwide deserves our strong support; not sanctions.


Today @POTUS removed sanctions previously imposed against @IntlCrimCourt personnel. The U.S. maintains our opposition to the ICC's attempts to exercise jurisdiction over personnel of non-States Parties, such as the United States and Israel.
