Tuition Reimbursement

PS&T Unit employees who are active, dues-paying members of PEF, are eligible to participate in the professional development opportunities under Article 15 of the New York State/PEF Collective Bargaining Agreement. Under Article 15, the Professional Development Committee reviews, approves, and funds programs such as training courses, grants, reimbursement, etc., that address the professional development needs of PEF-represented employees. The Tuition Reimbursement Program, made available through PEF and the NYS Office of Employee Relations (OER), is one such program.
