There have been several recent EU events concerning the cost of the EU administration in general and EU staff salaries in particular:

– the EU budget allocation for staff salaries, pensions and allowances in the negotiations over the EU budget 2013 and the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2014-20;

– the annual adjustment of the remuneration and pensions of EU staff as required by the EU Staff Regulations;

– the European Commission’s proposals for cutting administrative costs and amending the ‘method’ for calculating staff salaries;

– the Council’s application to invoke the ‘exception clause’, whereby the Commission can depart from the ‘method’ when there is a “serious or sudden deterioration in the economic and social situation” in the EU;

– four cases n progress at the EU Court of Justice regarding the use of the method in 2011 and 2012.
