Membership fees pay for the costs of having an organisation — such as contract negotiations, grievances, training for members, legal fees — so no one has to go it alone.
Funding the cost of our union as members also keeps us independant and unreliant on others.
A small increase is applied to our union fees each year in May (*fees for finance sector members remain fixed until October 2015)
This annual automatic increase was decided by union delegates at our 2001 regional conferences.
The amount of the increase is based on the average percentage wage increases achieved in each sector of the Union.
For those workplaces that have voted to pay more than the minimum union fee the automatic increase does not apply.
One month's written notice of resignation is required under FIRST Union rules.
