Your union

Federation is not affiliated with any political party, nor does it make donations to political parties.

All decisions of the union are made by practising classroom teachers at the union's forums such as Local Associations, Annual Conference, Council and Executive. Professional Officers do not vote in these forums.

Federation Officers' salaries are linked to the school teachers' award.
