The AEU NT uses a progressive fee structure, meaning members’ fees are based on income. For most members, fees are pegged at 0.88% of annual salary. For other groups of members, fees have been set lower based on factors such as job security and commonly associated life circumstances. AEU NT fees are set by Branch Executive, and changes are generally also approved by our annual Conference.
