DC 37 is dedicated to the empowerment of its members through education and career advancement. To create a ladder to professional success for its members, and to cultivate a new generation of rank-and-file union leaders, DC 37’s longstanding relationship with the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies has been expanded to include new course offerings for eligible members interested in learning more about labor relations and the labor movement.
Eligible members may take a series of four-course (12- to 16-credit) college-level programs—with tuition fully funded by the DC 37 Education Fund*—towards SLU’s undergraduate and graduate certificates in labor relations, Bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies (with a concentration in labor studies) and Master’s degree in Labor Studies. Upon completion of all new program benefits, DC 37 members may have access to additional educational support including tuition reimbursement.
These programs offer a comprehensive overview of union-side labor relations in the public sector. Students will gain the practical skills and knowledge necessary for effective leadership in the areas of collective bargaining, union administration, organizing, and labor law. Funded programs include:
