Call for presence

Geneva, 9 March 2010

Dear beneficiaries of the Pension Fund and former colleagues,

On 25 February 2010 you received a letter from the President of the Staff Association reporting on the particularly worrying financial situation of our Pension Fund.

This is why the GAC-EPA committee, together with the Staff Association, is appealing to you to join our active colleagues at a gathering beneath the windows of the Council meeting on Thursday 18 March 2010 at 90:00.

On this day you will be invited to sign a petition which will ask for an immediate stop to the massive outflow of capital of our Fund.  Far too long CERN Council has adopted a wait-and-see policy, which now means that the deficit is growing by an additional 220'000 CHF each day.

One petition, one message:

2'000 million CHF deficit, that's enough!

We are counting on each and everyone of you.

Gianni Deroma
President of the Staff Association
Horst Wenninger
President of GAC-EPA
