Because you are AFSCME-represented employees and have a union contract, your contract guarantees access to our tuition-reimbursement program administered through the AFSCME/OHSU Career and Workplace Enhancement Center.
All AFSCME-represented employees working 18.5 or more hours per 80-hour pay period are eligible for reimbursement of up to $300 per quarter for qualified professional-development expenses.
Funds are distributed on a quarterly basis, subject to approval, based upon the number of applicants and funds available. Due to this, applicants may not receive 100 percent of their reimbursement request.
The program reimburses employees' out-of-pocket expenses that are documented by a receipt of payment and proof of successful completion (i.e. final grade of "C" or above for classes, or certificate of completion for conferences, seminars, and workshops).
The AFSCME/OHSU Career and Workplace Enhancement Center (formerly the Labor Management Committee Center) serves as a campus-wide magnet for training information. The CWE Center is located in Marquam Plaza, rm. 110, open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The CWE Center can be reached by phone at (503) 418-0273, fax at (503) 418-0275 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
