Form of order sought

Annul the Commission's decisions, contained in the applicants' pay slips for January 2010 and the months thereafter, and in their slips concerning arrears of salary for 2009, in so far as those decisions apply a rate of adjustment of 1.85% instead of a rate of 3.7%;

Order the Commission to pay the difference between the amount of remuneration paid in application of Regulation No 1296/09 until the date of delivery of judgment in this case and the amount which should have been paid to them if the adjustment had been calculated correctly, together with interest at the rate set by the European Central Bank for main refinancing operations applicable in the periods concerned, plus 3.5 percentage points, for the period starting with the date on which sums principally claimed were due;

Order the European Commission to pay the costs.
