Unit 2 Training and Education Reimbursement

We announced back in January 2020, that through the Unit 2 Employee Training and Development account we are able to offer reimbursement to Unit 2 members for licenses and certifications that they are REQUIRED to hold as a condition of employment (excluding basic driver's license). Employees will be reimbursed the full cost of all REQUIRED licenses and certifications paid for between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the timeline has been extended to submit requests no later than November 6, 2020.

Please use the attached Training and Education Reimbursement Request Form that must be completed by any Unit 2 member who wishes to be reimbursed for licenses or certifications that they are REQUIRED to have for their job.

This form must be submitted to your Local Union Office for timely processing.

**In addition to reimbursement for required licenses, we may also have funds available for reimbursement for renewal of licenses and certifications that are not required. The dollar amount of the reimbursement that members will receive for each non-required license or certificate, coursework to support license and certification, and the number of licenses and certificate that will be reimbursed to each member will be determined based upon the number of members who request reimbursement. However, the amount paid to each eligible employee will not exceed the actual cost of the license, certification, or course.**

Please read the information on the enclosed form and provide all documentation requested. Failure to provide the needed information may result in your request for reimbursement being denied.

In order to be considered, all requests for reimbursement must be returned to your Local Union Office no later than November 6, 2020.
