Un délégué c'est...

Become a delegate, it's easy!

CERN's employment conditions have had a rather hard time over the past few years. The Staff Association, with the support of the staff, has managed to avoid the worst on many occasions. The next few years will be decisive, which is why we must continue to be on the scene, active, a source of proposals, and a real negotiating partner.

The Staff Association is your only formal representative vis-à-vis the Management and the Member States, and the Staff Council your voice.


A rapidly evolving Staff Association

In November, all 45 seats in the Staff Council must be filled. All delegates are therefore outgoing. About a dozen current delegates have informed us that they will not stand for election again, which corresponds to a standard turnover. We thank these outgoing delegates for their past investment.

If you are interested in the work of the Staff Association, get involved. We need delegates, from amongst staff members as well as fellows, of all ages, nationalities, gender, professions, grades and departments. To participate you will have to:

  1. Become a member

    To be able to vote you must first become a member of the Staff Association, if you are not already. For those who are not members and have been in two minds until now, come and join us, there is still time!

  2. Stand as a candidate for the election

    The registration for candidacy is now closed. You can see the list of candidates for the 2015 elections.

  3. Vote to elect the new Staff Council.

The elections 2015 are closed since 9 November 2015 at 12:00 a.m.


Crucial elections!

There are always many challenges to take up. Only a flourishing, determined and united Staff Council which represents, in particular, all sensibilities of the staff will be able to deal with these future issues. Thus the Staff Association will be able to pursue its task of building a "laboratory of social excellence" to which everyone can adhere. 

Take your future in hand! It's time to show, by actively being involved, that you are attached to a Staff Association modelled on CERN which we want to be a laboratory of excellence. Representing the staff is the responsibility of all, the responsibility of everyone!


Make your mark on the life and future of CERN!
