  • To encourage members to take an active role in the UPU work
  • To coordinate European remuneration discussions for the next UPU Congress
  • To help member posts prepare for changes in the UPU remuneration Systems
  • To provide a platform for exchange of information and expertise on other important developments in the postal area
