The Staff Association: because you’re worth it

A new logo, a new website and now we’re on Facebook: the members of the rejuvenated Staff Association of CERN want to take this opportunity to remind you that the SA is open to everyone. All you have to do is join.


Every ordinary or associated member of the personnel of the Organization and — through GAC-EPA, the CERN-ESO Pensioners’ Association — every retiree, is entitled to join the CERN Staff Association. The goal of the SA is to defend the collective and individual rights of CERN staff members and members of their families, in matters relating to both their material interests and their well-being. With its independant ideas and its constructive work, the SA also plays an important role as a source of new proposals. The more CERN staff members join the Staff Association, the more respect it commands as a social partner. Currently, 1,355 people are members — that’s over half of the total staff. So, why not join?

To find out more, go to the Association’s website, or visit us on Facebook.

Staff members holding a limited-duration (LD) contract, fellows, apprentices, and associated members of the personnel pay a flat rate of 20 CHF per year. For staff members holding an indefinite contract (IC), the contribution rate is currently 0.2% of the annual basic salary.
