Cancelling your membership

How to cancel your membership

Before leaving the union, please talk to your rep, your branch, or the membership team about whether there are other options you might want to explore. For instance, members who are on Maternity Leave, Shared Parental Leave, or Adoption Leave do not have to pay membership fees for the duration of the period of leave, up to a maximum of 18 months. If you work part-time reduced rates might apply. Associate membership is available for those who are no longer eligible for standard membership because they have left employment in education but who have not retired.

Members who are retiring can maintain membership at a reduced rate as a retired member, rather than cancelling their membership.

If you wish to retain access to union advice and assistance, you must maintain continuous full, retired or associate membership of the union as appropriate. Once your membership stops you will not be entitled to advice or support from the union, even if you are seeking help with an issue that relates to a time when you were a member.

If you need further advice on options such as retired membership or notifying the union that you’re on maternity leave, please contact membership or call the membership team on 0345 811 8111. (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)

If you still want to cancel your membership, please answer the following questions and click submit. The NEU membership team will receive notification of your cancellation and will email you written confirmation. Please note this might go to your junk folder.

Do you give permission for the NEU to contact you by email or telephone within the next 6 months to ask you for more detailed feedback?
