In the 2022-2025 facilities contract, HEU and its union bargaining partners secured additional monies for the FBA Education Fund. In all, the unions have negotiated $20M in support of the fund since 2006.
The FBA Education Fund is a health care education and training fund managed by the multi-union Facilities Bargaining Association (FBA). The fund provides skills upgrading and career mobility opportunities for union members covered by the facilities subsector collective agreement.
Since it was first established, the fund has been very popular and has contributed to many members, from every occupational job family, to reach their career goals.
The application and selection process is overseen by union members and staff.
Distribution of funds fairly and representatively accommodate all unions, regions and job families in the facilities subsector.
