Why become a member of the Staff Association?

The Staff Association exists because different categories of CERN staff come together to defend their rights and material and moral interests, as a group of persons or as individuals. The Staff Association is also a source of proposals, gaining respect in its role as a negotiating partner the more staff members it has behind it.
