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.

Membership fee

As an official member you are also obliged to pay membership fees. The following shall apply: Everyone according to his or her means: You decide yourself which category you fall into, as your salary does not say anything about your financial situation.

This membership fee is used e.g. for the newspaper, stickers, other propaganda material or also for actions (e.g. also strike fund). Unlike the central trade unions, the FAU is based entirely on voluntary work. This means that we do not have any paid officials, which means that your contribution goes entirely into our work.

  • - 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
