The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), and UN WOMEN have constituted themselves as an Association which is known as the United Nations Development Programme, United Nations Population Fund, United Nations Office for Project Services and UN WOMEN Staff Association/Staff Council. The Association is regulated by the Constitution of the UNDP/UNFPA/ UNOPS/UN WOMEN Staff Association/ Staff Council.
As per Article 2, of the Constitution, the purpose of the UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS/UN WOMEN Staff Association is to
(a) promote and safeguard the rights, interests and welfare of UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS/UN WOMEN staff;
(b) develop and improve effective staff participation in the decision-making process by maintaining active and open channels of communication with the Administration.

(d) promote cooperation and unity among Staff Associations and Unions in the United Nations and UN Specialized Agencies within one Common System on matters governing conditions of service; (e) defend staff and work to improve terms and conditions of employment.
The UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS/UN WOMEN Staff Council is undertaking a process to revise the current Constitution. The Constitution was last revised in 2013 and this review process aims to resolve any inconsistencies, clarify the roles and responsibilities of the Staff Council and make sure that the Constitution is relevant to the current context and needs of the constituency we serve and the Local Staff Associations.
The review will not attempt to change the mandate or core objectives of the Staff Council: Advocate for the rights, interests, and welfare of personnel worldwide and promote a better understanding and mutual respect between the Management and personnel.
The Staff Association derives its mandate from chapter VIII of the UN Staff Rules and Regulations (ST/SGB/2018/1)[SH1] and its own Constitution (July 2013). The Staff Association is represented through a Staff Council of elected members in New York and through Local Staff Associations at country-level. Its elected members are fully accountable to the UNDP/UNFPA/ UNOPS/ UNWOMEN/ Staff Association and personnel of the constituent agencies/entities.
