Who are we?
Due to the directives given by the President of the European Commission (Ursula VON DER LEYEN) related to Covid-19 "Coronavirus" and restriction of acces to offices, meetings of Executive Committee and Bureau, and Staff Committees wont be insured until further notice. Thank you for your understanding (See the communication).
The members of the Executive Committee (Comex) are elected for 3 years during the internal elections (wich follow the elections of the staff representation) and have the task of organising and ensuring the functioning of the union.
The Comex is the decision-making body of SFE (with the exception of co-opted members who do not have the right to vote).
According to its statutes, SFE also has a Financial Commission in charge of the financial control of our organization (under the responsability of the Treasurer) as well as a Mediation Commission in charge of internal disputes within SFE.
