Membership contributions

Union membership is affordable.

Contributions are mainly deducted from members’ accounts on their pay-day, however some members chose to pay their contributions annually which attracts a further 10% discount.

Contributions are 100% tax deductible and at the end of the financial year, you are provided with a statement from the Union in order to claim the deduction on your tax return.

Contributions only increase following Union negotiated wage rise outcomes. To view a copy of the CEPU’s contributions policy please click here.

The following contributions schedule is effective as of 1 April 2017. Special discounted rates are available for trainees. For more information contact the CEPU office on (02) 9893 7822.
