New FBA Education Fund applications now available

Printer Friendly Version

During 2010 contract talks, the Facilities Bargaining Association (FBA) – the multi-union bargaining agent representing about 38,000 health care workers in B.C. – negotiated another $1.25 million education fund for members covered by the 2010–2012 Health Services & Support Facilities Subsector collective agreement.

This stemmed from the success of the $5 million FBA Education Fund secured in the 2006–2010 facilities contract to support health care workers in skills upgrading and career mobility opportunities.

Members can apply for short-term or long-term training funds. The first deadline for long-term training applications is June 18, 2010.

Please note that funds will not be available for distribution until the monies are transferred to the FBA.
