Now there are positive news: Roland Fumagalli has decided to run for the office of pensioners' representative. As he is the only candidate, he was elected in a - so-called - silent election. Roland worked as a nursing specialist HF in the Medical Service Basel/Kaiseraugst until 31.10.2022 (33 years), since 1.11.2022 he is retired. Roland can preferably be contacted by e-mail, at email hidden; JavaScript is required, - or on 079 646 0805.

A corresponding communication to all retirees will take place in the coming days.

Have you previously worked for Roche and at that time were a member of the Roche Employees’ Association (AVR)? If so, you automatically remain an AVR member after retirement. This means you can still take advantage of many benefits:

  • Retirees can choose from a catalogue with over 80 different offers entitling them to discounts.
  • Every two years, the AVR organises an attractive retirees’ event. And pensioners are of course also welcome to attend the AVR’s Annual General Meeting.
  • Through its employee Pension Fund trustees, the AVR campaigns for the preservation and safeguarding of 2nd-pillar pensions.
  • In case they have suggestions or questions, retired members have their own representative who looks after their interests on the AVR committee and thus provides a link to the current business.

Important: membership of the AVR is free for retired Roche employees!
