It has been quite a positive and productive two weeks indeed.
Some very good news to be expected for our staff once the report has been approved. Very grateful for the help from our sister federations on important topics tackled during this session.

Great discussion hosted by the UN Staff Union-NY. Speakers @aitorarauz, Therese Fitzpatrick, Miguel Mourato Gordo, Muhammad Ali and Danijela Milic spoke about mental health prevention, stigma, the role of managers and resources available for #UN personnel.
#MentalHealthMatters

We believe that #mentalhealth 🧠 & well-being is important to your success – but it all starts with healthy interactions in the workplace.

It is time for action in the United Nations, we cannot and will not accept the continuous victimization of whistleblowers. Those that have the courage to stick their neck out and report corruption, fraud, wrongdoing etc. should be celebrated not ostracized.

The United Nations Field Staff ...Union stands ready to work towards significant and meaningful reform of the Internal Justice System of the UN and in particular strengthening the whistleblower protection and investigative mechanisms.

It is one thing however to have a "perfect" policy, it is another to actually implement and live by those policies.

Staff need to be able to believe and trust the integrity of the system and its leaders.

As it stands they do not.

Latest UN whistleblower exposé shows need for urgent reforms - Press

Civil society organisations call for an independent inquiry into whistleblower retaliation complaints.

Fully endorse this message and it’s proposals. The United Nations desperately needs to reform its internal system of justice and embrace recommendations made by various stakeholders over the years.

The UN needs to set an example to the world. We must demand real #Whistleblower protection throughout the UN system. Oversight bodies need to be truly independent and UN System wide. Secure anonymous reporting and follow up communication platform is needed. #endimpunity https://t.co/6JkoFIXCkM

"Whether it's corruption, fraud, sexual harassment, [UN staff] feel they can't progress even to making a report, that the complaints are initially dismissed far too early. They're not given alternative procedures and appeals access," https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-61826551

It’s high time for real changes in the UN.
Truly independent investigative capacity. UN system wide whistleblower protection that is independent from individual UN organizations and entities. A platform for ongoing anonymous communications. #endimpunity https://t.co/QlX8JyLW4K

We salute 🫡 all our staff for the sacrifices they make on a daily basis. We honour those that have given their lives in the service of what the United Nations 🇺🇳 aims to achieve in the world. https://t.co/1LeCKQJzPF

"Whether ...it's corruption, fraud, sexual harassment, [UN staff] feel they can't progress even to making a report, that the complaints are initially dismissed far too early. They're not given alternative procedures and appeals access," she said.

"The UN has certainly addressed some of the big failures it had before, but it hasn't gone far enough. I have seen things that are very troubling - that can and should be addressed as a matter of urgency, not just in words, but in deeds."

We continue to call for the release of the @UNHumanRights report on human rights abuses in Xinjiang. The report must come out. https://t.co/pe1e2iIx6x

We urge High Commissioner @MBachelet to release the @UNHumanRights report on human rights issues in Xinjiang, which was being finalized in September 2021.
And let’s be clear: any visit by the High Commissioner to China must have unhindered and unfettered access.
