Permanent & contract staff membership

Join Australia’s largest education union


The Australian Education Union represents and advocates for all teaching staff in public education, as well as many support workers.

How much will my membership be?

For full time teachers and staff in the AEU NT, union membership fees are 0.88% of your annual gross salary (inc. GST). So, if you earn $100,000 per annum, your fortnightly payment would be less than $34.00. And remember that your fees are tax deductible!

Fortnightly membership fee: $0.00

Why join the AEU NT?

The information on our website is available free of charge - but only financial members enjoy the protections of union membership and access to expert advice and support.

Union membership is like insurance for you if anything goes wrong at work - an accident, a disciplinary charge, bullying, underpayment or any other issue that might come up.

The support you need when you need it

As a member of the union, you will never be alone in meetings with management or forced to deal with complex issues on your own. Our staff are experts in industrial law, negotiation and advocacy. When we can't deal with an issue ourselves, we have support from a national office, other branches and a skilled team of lawyers.
