The 2017 membership fees will be decided at the Branch Executive meeting to be held on December 13, 2016. Under the rules the power to set the fees, as with all financial decisions rests with the Branch Executive.
This is qualified by Rule 70 — Transitional Rule 70. (10). This sets the fee at 0.76 per cent payable at step 13 of the common incremental scale based on the salary level payable on or before January 31 in the schools sector and incorporates the Public Education Fund.
The 2017 Membership Fees will be published on the Federation’s website following the meeting. The new membership fees determined by the Branch Executive will be effective from January 1.
