Representation on Staff Pension Committees

According to new rules approved by the Pension Board in 2017, 2 representatives of retirees are foreseen as members of local Staff Pension Committees (SPCs); prior to this ARICSA had one representative on each SPC. With reference to the Fund’s letter of 6 October 2017, ARICSA has contacted the Secretaries of the IAEA and UNIDO SPCs to inform them that ARICSA has nominated as its SPC representatives the following persons:

  • Ms. Marie-Odile Dorer, the present ARICSA representatives on the UNIDO SPC, and
  • Mr. Gerhard Schramek, the present representative, is joined by
  • Mr. Jerry Barton, current ARICSA President, as ARICSA representatives on the IAEA SPC.

UNOV retirees are represented by New York colleagues on the Headquarters SPC.
