EPO examiners strike again

The examiners of the EPO are competing with the french transportation workers and SAS personel for the title for the employees on strike. 18.9 the examiners striked again, and again because they disagree with how the organisation is run by the administrative council.

Somebody have to tell them that they are harming themselves more than improving their situation. If I was in a smaller patent office I would look at my colleagues and say: “We have made our system an unstable monolith…how do we cure that problem?”

The answer is of course decentralisation.
