[USF] Settlement agreement reached at the EPO concerning Laurent Prunier

In recent years, social dialogue at the European Patent Office has been badly damaged. Since 2014, the EPO has been strongly criticised for its directives which go against the rights and interests of employees. Legal actions have multiplied as the suffering of staff members has increased. Today, a settlement agreement has been reached at the EPO concerning Laurent Prunier.

Laurent Prunier's letter is available in English, French and German.
