Over 20,500 Teachers and Lecturers in the Irish Public Education Sector enjoy the protection and support of TUI. Why not join them today?

TUI recruits members in Post-Primary, Higher and Further/Adult Education sectors. If you are interested in joining TUI contact your School/College Representative.

The TUI subscription was reduced for all members from 1st January 2024.

From 1st January 2024, the TUI subscription for a member on full hours is €362. This represents a reduction of over 9% on the previous maximum annual subscription of €399.   

Those new to the profession paid on the Common Basic Scale will not pay the full subscription rate until they commence their 4th year of teaching and even then will only do so if on full hours.

Subscriptions are calculated on each individual’s salary, so if a teacher/lecturer has a contract of less than full hours, they pay less as their subscription will be 0.75% of their gross earnings, inclusive of any allowances.

New members in their first teaching/lecturing post shall receive a refund of the subscription they pay in respect of their first twelve consecutive months of Union membership. The refund shall be made by way of a single payment in the month of December immediately following that first twelve-month period of membership.
