NTEU NSW and NSW Nurses Join Forces
NTEU and the NSW Nurses Association have developed a dual membership arrangement to cover people in NSW who work both for the university and in a clinical context—at no extra cost to you.
We are incredibly excited to offer dual membership in NSW for university staff nurse educators who want to maintain their membership of the NSW Nurses Association. This will be particularly useful for nursing academics who work as nurses part time—either for extra income or to maintain their clinical skills.
Dual membership will provide you with full industrial coverage across your teaching, research and clinical work, and allows you to stay in touch with developments and issues facing both sectors.
How dual membership works
If your primary employment (60% or more of your work) is with the university you join the NTEU and pay fees to us, and register with the Nurses Association as a dual member. If your primary employment is in a clinical nursing position and you teach a small number of hours, you join and pay fees to the NSW Nurses Association and register with the NTEU as a dual member.
It is that easy—and you only pay fees to one union.
Join as a dual member today!
Please see below two forms—a purple dual member form if you work 60% or more at a university, and a blue dual member form if you work 60% or more in clinical practice. Follow the instructions on the form and attached how to guide to become a member of both unions.
