Updated Child Care Reimbursement Guidelines

January 8, 2016

The Delegates Assembly this month voted to update our union’s child care reimbursement guidelines. You can be reimbursed for child care expenses incurred when you attend a union meeting.

The new guidelines raise the reimbursement rate from $15/hour to $20/hour, expand the reimbursement to include elder care (if you need to pay someone to stay with an elder family member so that you can attend a union meeting), and continues to exclude reimbursement for care performed by a household member.

To receive reimbursement, simply email a receipt or note from your child care provider to the union President, Vice President, or Treasurer.
