‘New Union Members Welcome Scheme’

This scheme applies to the first year of a new Union member subscription.  

The Welcome scheme fees are proportionally reduced based on the ‘normal’ fees listed above, and should also be paid at one time. No proportional discounted rates are applied to renewals of membership. 

  • 100% for new subscriptions till 31 March 
  • 75% for new subscriptions from 1 April to 30 June; 
  • 50% for new subscriptions from 1 July to 30 September; 
  • 25% for new subscriptions from 1 October to 31 December. 

Retired staff already enjoy discounted fees, but for all new Union members who are retired staff, the welcome scheme discount will be added to the foreseen 50% discount.
