|UPDATE: new monthly membership dues from 2022 on
(*) Please note: ACOD is not automatically informed on possible changes in your personal situation that could cause a change in monthly membership contribution. A change of your membership contribution, e.g. when you reduce your employment to halftime or when you are retiring or are becoming unemployed, can only be implemented for your future contributions after you have informed us of this change in your personal situation.
As member of ACOD UGent you can inform us on these changes through e-mail to ACOD@UGent.be
Also a change of address after you have moved, or a change in bank account number, can always be communicated through e-mail, as well as e.g. a change of employer. In this last case we will check which branch of ACOD or ABVV is responsible for this employer, and will inform them so they can take the necessary steps to mutate your membership to this trade union branch.
Syndicale premie (annual refund)
At Ghent University members of a trade union are entitled to an annual refund of part of their membership dues, called syndicale premie. The application forms for this syndicale premie are usually sent by Ghent University to all staff members (having worked at Ghent Univeristy during the previous calendar year) at the end of March - beginning of April. Members should complete and sign this form and hand it in to their trade union. More details on this will be cummunicated by us shortly after the application forms have been sent by Ghent University.
People who were member of the trade union during the full previous calendar year are entitled to a full syndiacle premie. At the moment this consists of an amount of 90 EUR. People who have joined the union later during the previous calendar year will olny receive part of the syndicale premie.
