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.
Member fees will soon be updated in line with current salaries for members employed under the 2021-2024 Teachers, Assistant Teachers' and Non-Contract Principals Enterprise Agreement. Those members will be contacted by email to advise of when this change will take effect. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions. Download the upcoming fee schedule here.
There will be no change to the fees of members employed under the General Agreement or by school councils as any form of classroom support.
You may also join by downloading and returning the hard copy membership application form [PDF].
We offer several options for paying your fees: fortnightly via direct debit or payroll deduction, monthly via credit card, or up front for a term, semester or annually. Union membership fees are 100% tax deductible and each year you will be issued with a letter to use to claim the deduction when completing your tax return.
Direct debit and credit card payments are collected on our behalf by Ezidebit Australia via secure payment gateway to keep your personal information secure. Direct Debit payments are collected in accordance with Ezidebit's DDR Service Agreement.
Access to confidential, expert advice from the full-time officers and support staff of the union.
Support and advocacy at the workplace level through your elected union sub-branch representative.
Fully-funded legal support in more complex matters (where approved by the union's Executive).
The AEU is one of the largest and strongest unions in the country, which means better salaries and working conditions for teachers and educators.
