NEU Behaviour Statement

Everyone attending a National Education Union (NEU) event has the right to expect a space free from bullying, intimidation and harassment; to be treated with dignity, respect and courtesy and not to be discriminated against.

The NEU will not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. Members attending an NEU event are responsible for their own behaviour and must ensure they behave appropriately showing respect to others during NEU events and social activities.
Reports of inappropriate behaviour, including behaviour which brings injury or discredit to the union, will be treated seriously and acted upon promptly.  Any such behaviour may ultimately result in attendees being asked to leave and/or action being taken against members under the Union’s Code of Professional Conduct.

The event coordinator will outline how members can report inappropriate behaviour, and the event coordinator has complete discretion to ask individuals to leave the event.
