Regional offices

The AEU has a network of organisers and secretaries in five regional offices in Ballarat, Benalla, Bendigo, Geelong and Morwell.

Phone or email your nearest office with any union or employment-related queries, or drop in and catch up on the latest union information and publications.

Our country organisers regularly visit workplaces across their region and can help members to organise around local issues and AEU campaigns and develop a strong union presence in their schol or institution. They also:

  • Support AEU sub-branch representatives in their roles
  • Conduct union training and PD throughout the region, run sessions at your workplace on topics such as legal liability and health and safety, and run briefings for education support members, beginning teachers and other groups
  • Visit sub-branches and workplaces by invitation to speak to members on specific issues 
  • Provide individual advice on all aspects of members' agreements and working conditions
  • Help with WorkCover claims, grievances, complaints procedures and Merit Protection Board appeals.

Regional office secretaries are available to help members with union membership information and sub-branch administration as required.
