How to join the union
By joining the union, you simply complete two sets of forms (i.e. membership form and stop order form)
Membership form is a form with one’s all particulars (for view and download, click below)
Stop order form is a form where an individual instructs the employer (department of education) to make monthly stop order deduction from one’s salary and remit it to South African ABET Educators Union.
NB: This form is completed by educators who are on post establishment in terms of the Employment of Educators Act 75 of 1998; those who are not their stop order cannot be effected. (for view and download, click below)
All the two sets of forms have to be submitted to the office of the union accompanied by an ID photo for the purpose of membership.
Educators who are not appointed as said (post establishment) have the following options:
1. Direct deposit into the bank
2. Debit order
3. Once off annual deposit into the bank
The deposit slip has to be faxed/emailed or sent to the office of the union.
Reference on the deposit slip will be one’s surname and initials. Once the membership number is provided, it will be used as a reference in future.
A member will visit his/her bank with the account number and clearing code/branch code of the union. She/he will instruct his/her bank to debit the subscription fee into the union’s account on the convenient date of his/her choice. A member has to require a proof of such agreement which will be attached to his/her membership form.
Once off annual deposit into the bank:
A member may deposit R360.00 as an annual subscribing fee into the bank of the union following same procedures as of the direct deposit.
NB: All the above arrangements are just temporary until all members have been appointed on persal as the union is fighting for.
Acceptance of membership
On receipt of membership after the first payment of subscription, the member will receive the following documents:
• Constitution of the union
• Policy document
• Membership card
