Application for FAU Membership
What does it mean to be a member?
How much you get involved in FAU is up to you. We welcome any active person, but understand that you may not have time to actively participate in the meetings and activities at this time.
The meetings of FAU Bern take place every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. Only official members are entitled to decision making.
As an official member you are also obliged to pay membership fees. The following shall apply: Each according to his_her own possibilities. As a guideline we give 1% of your income. This membership fee will be used e.g. for the newspaper, stickers, other propaganda material or for actions (e.g. strike fund). In contrast to the central trade unions, FAU is based entirely on voluntary work. That means, we have no paid officials, so your contribution is fully included in our work
Who cannot become a member?
Although we want to remain as open as possible, there are certain occupations which we exclude from the outset:
- Members of state repressive apparatuses (e.g. police, but not social work)
- Managers (persons who can decide on the dismissal of persons by themselves, i.e. alone)
- Paid party officials
This was only a very rough overview of FAU Bern. If you have any further questions, please come by one of the regulars' tables (every 2nd Tuesday of the month) or write us at info (ät) faubern.ch
