And after the Elections!

What happens to the newly elected, and the re-elected delegates after the election of the new Staff Council?

It is the outgoing Staff Council which is responsible for preparing the new staff representatives to take on their new roles. To do this, information days are organized in the form of assizes. This year they will take place on November 27 in the morning; as well as on November 28, bringing together the new Staff Council.

These days mainly aim to inform delegates about the role of the Staff Association (SA) at CERN, the bodies, committees, forums, etc.; with whom the SA interacts, how the work of the SA is organized, the issues on which it works. These days are like a kind of "induction".

Thank you, Sudeshna!

On Monday 16th October, an impressive number of CERN staff, retirees and other friends gathered in Restaurant 1 to bid farewell to Sudeshna Datta-Cockerill on the occasion of her retirement after 41 years at CERN.

It was a very nice evening with speeches and dances, with friendly chat and collectively remembering about CERN’s history, our history, this history that Sudeshna managed to shape in several ways.

Thank you, Philippe, and all the best for the journey ahead!

Philippe Trilhe, our friend and colleague in the Staff Association, will be going on leave before embarking on retirement. The Staff Association expresses a heartfelt thank you to Philippe for his unwavering commitment of 27 years!
