The ILOAT celebrated its 90th anniversary!

The beginning of a new year is an excellent opportunity to look back on the highlights of the previous year. The fast pace at which the CERN Staff Association has to handle current issues unfortunately left us with no time to present a jubilee that deserves to be brought to your attention, the 90th anniversary of the International Labour Organisation Administrative Tribunal (ILOAT), celebrated on 5 May 2017.

On this occasion, two representatives of the CERN Staff Association participated in the symposium on the ”90 years of contribution to the creation of international civil service law”.

Interview with Mr Bernard Dormy, Chair of TREF, in November 2017

Mr Bernard Dormy finished his term of office as the Chair of the Tripartite Employment Conditions Forum (TREF) (see Echo No. 242) at the end of 2017.

On this occasion, the Staff Association met with him to discuss CERN and its personnel and, amongst other things, the model for concertation.

Moreover, the Staff Association would like to take this opportunity to applaud Mr Dormy for the commitment he has shown since 2003, when he first started at TREF as a delegate of France. It is easy to believe that Mr Dormy found his mandate in this Forum particularly pleasing, since he served as the Vice-Chair of TREF from 2007 to 2011, and then as the Chairman from 2012 to 2017.

During his chairmanship, Mr Dormy always made sure that the concertation took place under the best possible conditions, in a constructive manner and in a spirit of mutual respect. Furthermore, he placed great emphasis on diversity at CERN: there was not a single TREF meeting without an update on diversity issues and progress made in this area.

Before moving on to questions and answers, the Staff Association would like to thank Mr Dormy for his profound respect for the CERN personnel, which he has expressed to us on numerous occasions. In turn, we would like to extend to him our most respectful and heartfelt greetings.

A Difficult start

The results of the election of the new Staff Council were published on 20th November 2017 in Echo N° 281.

The process of renewing the Staff Council proceeded very well: candidates in numbers, from all departments, ranks and categories (staff, fellows and associates); and the turnout rate in this election is up compared to previous elections ... something to be celebrated and congratulated.
