Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Since 1 June of this year, there is no restriction on free movement anymore for people from EU-15 (+Iceland, Norway and Liechstenstein). The last restrictions will be lifted in 2014 for people from "new" Europe.
See this for more info on Geneva and bilateral treaties (only french).

In june 2009, there will be a referendum on these bilateral treaties. With the recent gains of SVP /UDC (nationalist right party) in Switzerland, I fear what the issue could be.

The treaties are a two-way street. If the Swiss repeal them, they will feel it more than the EU states.

Are you telling me that Barbara won't be allowed to move freely within Switzerland?

DT > Bilatérales > Libre circulation des personnes
L'accord sur la libre circulation des personnes a été étendu aux 10 nouveaux Etats membres de l'UE (Chypre, Estonie, Hongrie, Lettonie, Lituanie, Malte, Pologne, République tchèque, Slovaquie, Slovénie) grâce à une quinzaine d'accords le 1er mai 2006.

...

La Suisse pourra maintenir jusqu'en 2011 des restrictions à l'accès à son marché du travail  vis-à-vis de 8 des 10 nouveaux Etats membres de l'UE (Estonie, Hongrie, Lettonie, Lituanie, Pologne, République tchèque, Slovaquie, Slovénie). Elle maintiendra la priorité des travailleurs déjà intégrés sur le marché du travail, le contrôle a priori des conditions de travail ainsi que le contingentement des permis.
