Join IEU now and enjoy a discount

Thank you to all our members who returned their 2020 renewal. Also, a big thank you to those automatic payers for taking the time to check their details. More than 3000 members have already taken advantage of our annual discount rate. If you would like to pay the discount rate but can’t meet the deadline due to website access issues or are experiencing financial hardship due to the bushfire crisis, contact

Remember our annual discount rate is available until 10 February 2020 so you still have time to take advantage of the upfront payment discount.

Just a reminder to payroll deduction payers if you want to pay the discount rate you need to advise your employer directly to stop deductions and then contact the union to make payment. If you need assistance to renew, membership staff are happy to help. Simply call us direct on 8202 8900 (press 1) or email

We also offer rates for casuals, retirees and those taking maternity leave or leave without pay.

If your workload has changed in 2020 and youwish to update, contact us.
To offer you the best shopping discounts anda range of lifestyle benefits, we will continue our arrangements with Member Advantage and Union Shopper in 2020.

All current members will receive an activation email direct from Member Advantage in February 2020. To access not only discounts and benefits but also your electronic 2020 membership card, you will need to open the email and follow the instructions provided.

You can download a printable version of your membership card from the Member Advantage website or add an electronic card to your smart phone wallet.

We will send our annual membership update to chapter reps in February 2020.
As we continue negotiations for agreements in Catholic schools and move towards negotiating new agreements in AIS schools, it is vital that member information is current.

We ask all reps to take the time to check the details we have for your chapter and return the update. If you are lucky enough to have more than one rep in your chapter, work together to complete the form but return only one copy. All reps who return the update will receive a gift in appreciation for what we hope is a simple and quick task.

We are pleased to report that the NSW/ACT Branch of the IEU grew by 1% in the 12 months leading up October 2019. We thank all reps and members who spoke with a colleague and encouraged them to join their union.

While we grew across most of our types of membership classifications it is worth noting that there was a slight decline in membership among our support staff member classification.

Remember to invite support staff employees to join the IEU so that we can continue to pursue better salaries and conditions for all employees from a position of strength.

Thank you for your support
Membership team
