Our Crisis meeting of all staff on 2 April was a huge success. Thank you all!
The CERN main amphitheater was completely filled with over 400 participants, with several tens of people having to remain standing. Those present showed their support for the position defended by the staff representatives in the various bodies. They appreciated the promise that the Staff Association would keep them informed about the evolution of the situation over the coming weeks. Finally, they expressed their readiness to be called upon for further action in the near future, when needed.
For more information, see our page dedicated to the crisis: link.

For the last 15 years contract policy has been one of the top priorities of CERN staff, as expressed in successive surveys initiated by the Staff Association. In one’s professional life, having some forward vision of one’s career prospects is the key to loyalty and motivation. On the contrary, instability about the future is always at the root of anxiety, conflicts, or even health problems. A good employer must therefore balance the needs of the Company and those of its employees.
