Support for education is often a benefit of union membership. In some cases, funds are available through the union’s contractual agreement with employers. Other times support is provided from the union treasury. The delivery of education support packages include voucher programs, tuition reimbursement, and scholarships. The amount of assistance and the details of how to access these funds can change over time, so please contact your employer or union.
