Because we are stronger together
Together we are a stronger voice for all tertiary education workers and the important role we play for students and the wider community. We believe in working hard for the students in our institutions, and being respected and paid fairly for that work. We believe in a high quality, public education system that that gives everyone a chance, and helps to build strong communities. We are part of the New Zealand union movement and we believe in working people working together to make things fairer and better for everyone.
We have strength and credibility
TEU is for everybody who works in tertiary education, including universities, polytechnics, wānanga and private training institutions, REAPs and OTEPs. We are a democratic organisation and we stand up together for what we believe in.
