Staff Association

The Staff Association is the statutory organ for staff representation. Its existence is ratified by Chapter VII of the Staff Rules:

“Within the framework of the present Rules, and independently of the normal hierarchical channels, the relations between the Director-General of the Organization and the members of the personnel shall be either direct with the individual or on a collective basis with the Staff Association as intermediary.”

All ordinary and associated members of the Organization, as well as pensioners, through the CERN Pensioners’ Association, may join the Staff Association.
