Our ESU Unionised Companies


Companies do not need to pay a fee to be unionised. However, there is a membership fee to be paid by employee who intends to join ESU/NTUC as a member. The cost for membership is $9 a month from January to November and $18 in December. As a staff benefit, company can choose to subsidise membership fees for employees.

ESU will schedule a meeting with the company to share and understand more about the company. Once the company has decided to form an official partnership with ESU, we will prepare the relevant documentations for company’s acknowledgement. These will be filed with the Ministry of Manpower.

ESU aims to benefit all operators across the education* industry and we want the voices of our members from all sectors in the education* to be heard, regardless of the companies they are in. Companies may be approached any time depending on various factors including membership, relevancy and timing. We encourage all companies in the industry to partner with us to create a sustainable employment ecosystem that will benefit employees and employers.

*excluding individuals working in the public sector.

No, unionisation of a company and union membership are two different matters. Employees of a unionised company would still have to individually sign up as an ESU member if they have not already done so. Individuals have the right to join a trade union and companies are not able to prevent them from doing so. Those who wish to join as an ESU member can sign up at
