Education & Development


The purpose of Union Education and Development activities is to educate members to become Union Activists in a way that is mutually beneficial to the individual member and to all Local 3550 members.   The Locals’ Education Committee will review all applications submitted in order to determine the total number of members sponsored and establish the funding for each event.

When  educational opportunities become available they will be posted here and we ask that each member wishing to attend please fill out the Education Funding Request Form  and submit it electronically or fax the completed form to the office.  All contact information is available on the top of the form.
