Article 18: Training and Education

ARTICLE 18

Training and Education

Section 1.   When employees desire to attend training or educational courses during their normal working hours, to improve their skills in their classification, they shall request the Publisher's permission to attend such courses, and

(A) If the Publisher agrees to grant such request, the Publisher shall pay such expenses as may be agreed upon by the Publisher and said employees, and

(B) If such request is granted by the Publisher, the employees shall be entitled to straight time pay for each shift they would have worked normally during the scheduled training or educational course period, so that the employee is guaranteed no loss of pay during the normal work week involved. No overtime will be paid to such employees during their absence from their job during the training or educational course period, including travel time.

(C) Employees wishing on their own time to learn skills outside their classification and deemed by the Publisher to be beneficial to the company may apply in advance for partial or full reimbursement. Reimbursement is at the Publisher’s discretion.
