2015, the year of all dangers

On Thursday, May 7 many of you attended, in the packed Main Amphitheatre, the crisis meeting organized by the Staff Association. The main aim of this public meeting was to lift the veil on the intentions of certain CERN Council delegates who would like to:

  • attack again and again our pensions;
  • reduce the budget of CERN in the medium term;
  • more generally, revise downward our employment and working conditions.

The video and the slides of the crisis meeting are available at https://indico.cern.ch/event/392832/.

Looking back

On 21 May 2015 we celebrate the 60 years of the Staff Association. In the first issue of the Journal of the Staff Association (October 1955), we find some information about the first months of the still very young CERN Staff Association. It is interesting to note, that the current structure of the Staff Association (body of delegates, clubs, cultural activities) was more or less already defined in 1955.

Crisis meeting

To all CERN staff: your rights are at risk!

We invite you to come to a crisis meeting on Thursday 7th May 2015 at 9 a.m., Auditorium, Main Building, Meyrin site.

Your presence is crucial, we are ALL concerned!

60th Anniversary

The Staff Association is happy to announce the start of the festivities for its 60th anniversary.

To mark this event, we asked a graphic designer, Kevin Moles, who works with the support of Fabienne Marcastel/DG, to create an anniversary logo. This is the model which was chosen.

Problèmes liés au départ en retraite et à la fiscalité

Nous avons identifié, 3 grands chapitres pour lesquelles bon nombre d’entre vous se posent des questions et ont fréquemment sollicités leurs délégués, qui n’ont pas toujours pu donner de réponses :

La retraite et sa préparation, l’affiliation aux régimes sécurité sociale de nos états hôtes et ses conséquences au moment de la retraite, la fiscalité en général

Nous vous proposons donc de répondre dès maintenant au questionnaire en ligne. Prière de nous envoyer parallèlement tous documents qui pourront nous aider à comprendre votre problème par courriel.
