Home > Membership > Benefits

There are two categories of STU membership:

1) Ordinary Branch (OB) Member
(Most Education Officers would belong to this category)
As an OB member of STU, you are eligible for all grievance-handling services, social, recreational and professional benefits provided by STU.

2) General Branch (GB) Members
(Education Officers like Principals belong to this category)
As a GB member of STU, you are eligible for social, recreational and professional benefits provided by STU. The only difference between the Ordinary and General Branch members is that we can offer advice but we cannot represent the latter in matters related to terms and conditions of service.

STU membership brings you a host of benefits:

1) Assistance in work related matters

We have highly qualified staff to advise and assist you if you need advice on your terms and conditions of service and assistance with work-related problems.

2) Professional Activities

We also assist our members in their work as teachers by organising courses, workshops and seminars on professional issues. We believe that the Union can help our members keep abreast with the latest developments in teaching pedagogy and methods.
3) Other STU Activities

We organise a host of social, sporting and recreational activities for our members. These are advertised regularly in our newsletter "The Mentor" which is sent on a regular basis to your home.
4) NTUC U Card
