For the month of May NTEU will share with you who we are and why we believe you should join our community. 

To celebrate with our membership we will also be running three competitions with some fun prizes - the winners of which will be announced during a live online lucky draw event!

The main objective of these annual promotions is to broadcast the good work and sacrifices made by our colleagues who choose to represent our interests at the negotiation table. They sacrifice their time, energy and often their own job security, to ensure that we get to go into our workspaces unburdened by the politics and conflict. And when we need it the most they form the wall of protection around us that weather the storms and conflicts within higher education. For most NTEU is the obvious union of choice on campus and we invite all staff to take a closer look and see if your values resonate with the only non-political national union in Higher Education!

The National Tertiary Education Union is pleased to announce the May Day Promotions in celebration of the good work done by unions!
