Spring is here. And it’s the perfect time to use up those remaining or never used Union Education Trust (UET) union-negotiated education benefit dollars. The 2017 UET fiscal year ends on June 30, 2017. Funds do not carry over to the next benefit year. To utilize the 2017 benefits, education and training events must begin before July 1. For college-credit courses, the term start date must be prior to July 1. Learn more at
