Program Description:


Local 53 will reimburse members seventy-five percent (75%) or up to a maximum of $2,000.00 per year for approved training costs and there are no limitations on the number of courses you can attend in a calendar year.




You must be an active Local 53 member in good standing for one (1) full year and continue to be in good standing until the last day of your training. If for any reason you fall into bad standing, after you have been approved, your application will be revoked immediately.

Upon completion of your approved class you will need to submit proof of payment and a copy of your certificate of completion to the Local 53 office in order to get reimbursed.


Note: Any software purchased and reimbursed by this program will be retained by the Union after completion of the course.


If you have any questions, please call the Local 53 office.
