"UKRAINE"

UNWG members are invited to learn about ARICSA (Association of Retired International Civil Servents Austria). Women tend to let the spouse manage the business parts of life and death…registration of birth, life and health insurance, paying bills, while we are busy bringing up children, shopping and cooking every day while holding down a job outside of home. When we are suddenly confronted with a change of the situation such as divorce, illness and death, we are often lost.  If your spouse or yourself is a member of the ARISA, you might find some expert advice or referral there. Jerry Baton, the ARISA President will present the organization to UNWG members.

 

2019 is a year of Ukrainian culture in Austria. Please come and share with us this Coffee Morning.

Those members who have kindergarten kids are welcome to bring them as UNWG member Maryna GUSHCHYNA will entertain them with a robotics master-class.

Authentic pastry and coffee will be served.

 

 
 
     
 

UNWG Membership Renewal or Registration for 2019

The members who have not renewed their membership for 2019 before December 2018, are not in the security list at the gate one. Please pay online and allow for two weeks before trying to come into VIC with the Membership card. 
Please contact : Lisa Shull: nwgmembershipchair@gmail.com
To facilitate our members to renew their UNWG membership, please down-load and complete >>this formi(click bold letters for Membership Registration form) and email or post it to the UNWG office. If you need further instruction, please contact the UNWG office or call 01 2600 24276 or 01 2602 64284.
Please remember that your membership runs from January to December of a calendar year, regardless of when you originally joined or renewed. You can renew your membership simply by making a bank transfer to our membership account. However, if any of your personal details have changed, you do need to notify the membership Chair. The updated members list is sent to the Security Gate and takes two weeks to be processed.
For those members who wish to pay their membership fee through bank transfer, the name, address, and organization status of the member should be indicated on the bank payment slip. Please inform >>Lisa Shull, the Membership Chairwoman, if your spouse has retired
, or will be retiring soon.

 
 
Did you know you can renew your membership by email and bank transfer? You will receive an email asking you to verify your membership information. You can send back an update or just a reply that it's fine and when we receive your bank transfer, you will be on the list for 2019. We will also have pre-printed Zahlscheins at our meetings and in the office if you would prefer to do the bank transfer in person. And, of course, you can always stop by the office to see our great Office Manager Team and renew.
Please help us out by renewing early this year and then keep the habit going.
 
     
 
 
       
 
     
 
The UNWG Career Guide Book
 
 

This Guide Book is intended to provide practical information on employment in Vienna for spouses of employees of the Vienna-based UN organizations, permanent missions and embassies. It has been prepared by members of the United Nations Women’s Guild using their experiences and knowledge of living and/or working in Vienna. Official sources have been used wherever possible throughout this Guide Book and every attempt has been made to ensure that the information is accurate, clear, covering most aspects of employment law in Austria as of the revision date of November, 2011.

Finding Help in Vienna
 
 

This resource book is compiled by the UNWG’s Family Status Committee for our members to obtain help during difficult times. The current edition has been updated and expanded based on "Crisis in Vienna" first published in 1997 by the International Women's Council and the UNWG. The current edition (August 2017}includes a new section on schools and kindergartens.  We believe that a woman is better to help herself when armed with the knowledge of her options and alternatives.  UNWG members may access “Finding Help in Vienna” in PDF >>here.  User name and password required.  Please contact the UNWG office for details.
