Join your staff union!

The UNOG Staff Coordinating Council is the union for all UN Secretariat staff in Geneva (which includes UNCTAD, OCHA, ECE, OHCHR, UNRISD and other UN Secretariat staff in Geneva). It represents you before management in Geneva and New York in all areas related to your conditions of service and welfare.

We need your support to continue fighting for your rights.

At a time of pay cuts, austerity and budget uncertainty, we need to fight together for our rights.

By contributing only CHF 10 per month via payroll you will help make it possible for your elected staff representatives to carry out their duties, engage lawyers to fight on our behalf, and fund staff initiatives.
