Staffroom cakes

ASTI school staff can organise staffroom cakes to celebrate during the week of World Teachers' Day and recoup the cost by submitting receipts directly to their branch treasurer. This offers ASTI staff an opportunity to welcome new members to the union. You can find the name and contact details of your branch treasurer by logging into your MyUnion account.
