Within the framework of the right of association recognized under Article 24b (Title I) of the Statutory Rules for Administrative Staff, a union branch linked to the Brussels branch of the Union of European and International Civil Servants (SFEI) was founded on 2 May 1977 at the EUI.
The Institute officially recognized the organization as being representative of the staff, and a framework agreement was signed.
Following developments of the UIL at Ispra, and upon joining the European public service union (Union Syndicale), the IUE-US Florence was established.
IUE-US Florence defends the trade-union liberties of its affiliates, members of the EUI administrative staff.
An executive board is elected by the Assembly according to the rules of the Statute. The current board was named on 9 November 2015 for a period of three years:
