Join the BFAWU
Here are our rates for joining the BFAWU. In some areas an additional amount is charged for the Benevolent Fund. These currently are (as from the 1st of September 2017):
Full Membership: £2.98 per week; £12.91 per month (Northern Ireland: £3.02 per week; £13.09 per month).
Young (Under the age of 18): £1.18 per week; £5.11 per month
Zero Hours Contract (only applicable in unrecognised sites): £1.18 per week; £5.11 per month
In order to campaign effectively on issues such as decent public services, rights at work, and fair pay, the BFAWU operates a Political Fund. We would encourage all members to agree to contribute to this Fund which costs an additional 4p per week (1p for Young Members). In order to agree to contributing, just tick the box on the application form. (This does not apply in Northern Ireland). Any member who has agreed to contribute and wishes to withdraw their contribution should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting their name and membership number.
