Joining IEU Victoria Tasmania
Who Can Join
Almost any person who works in non-government education can join IEU Victoria Tasmania. Membership includes teachers, principals, school assistants, clerical and administrative workers, teacher aides, integration aides, library and laboratory technicians, and educational consultants.
Employees who work in an ancillary capacity such as cleaners, grounds and maintenance workers, bus drivers and canteen staff can also join IEU Victoria Tasmania. There are only a few exceptions. Students currently undertaking a teaching qualification are also eligible to join for free.
If in doubt, please contact IEU Victoria Tasmania.
Why Join IEU Victoria Tasmania
If you work in non-government education it pays to be a member of the union who advances and protects your professional and industrial interests and secures your wages and conditions.

As well, members can access all the benefits which come with collective purchasing power such as discount health and travel insurance, access to a discount shopping service and discounts on a range of other goods and services.
And don't forget that all union membership fees are tax deductible.
