The Committee for the Guarantee of equal opportunities, workers' well-being and anti-discrimination (CUG) was set up by art. 57 of Legislative Decree no. 165/2001, as amended by art. 21 of Law no. 183/2010 and in accordance with art. 33 of the School's Statute.
The CUG replaces in a single competent body the "Committees for equal opportunities" and "Joint Committees on mobbing", established pursuant to collective bargaining, and takes on all their functions as provided by the law, collective agreements for government staff and other provisions.
The CUG is composed of one member appointed by each of the most representative trade unions as part of the Administration and an equal number of School representatives in order to ensure an overall equal representation by both genders. The President of the CUG is appointed by the School.
The CUG helps to optimize School productivity by promoting the creation of an environment of respect for the principles of equal opportunity, organizational well-being and the absence of any form of discrimination, direct and indirect, due to any of the following:
- chronological age;
- political views;
- sexual orientation.
The CUG promotes actions aimed at facilitating the reconciliation of work and family time. In order to plan the appropriate forms of support, the Committee promoted in 2014 a survey (available in the annexes) on the need to care for children, the elderly and dependent persons, made possible thanks to the availability of Institute of Economics fellows Drs. Fabrizio Sardella Alboni and Maria Vittoria.
