REIMBURSEMENT FORM


TO RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT
RECEIPTS AND DOCUMENTATION MUST BE PROVIDED TO SUPPORT CLAIM
ANY CLAIMS OLDER THAN SIX(6)MONTHS WILL NOT BE PAID


Here are the guidelines to follow for training reimbursement and pre-approval for training not listed on the reimbursement form.



1. Reimbursement form can be found on Local 99 website https://cmawlocal99.ca/ You can read the pre-approved course list and see if the training you want to take is listed. If it is and you meet the requirements listed on page 2 you can take the training. Only exception is welding tests must be pre-approved by me before taken. Email me kwilchak@cmaw.ca if you wish to take a welding test and I will approve via email to you. $500 maximum on all welding tests.

2. Once completed fill out reimbursement form, submit receipts and passing grades, tickets etc to Kelly Wilchak or Ken Bissonette to submit it to Local 99 for reimbursement. Kelly Wilchak email kwilchak@cmaw.ca Ken Bissonette email kbissonette@cmaw.ca

3. For training related to work requirements not listed on the pre-approved list send me an email kwilchak@cmaw.ca with course name, description, cost, time frame of course. I will then review it and once I approve I will send a training application to CMAW to have it put into a poll vote for the other CMAW local training committee members to vote on. Once the poll vote is sent out we will have 24 hours to vote yes or no. When the motion has carried to approve or deny the request the member will be sent an email to proceed with training if approved or an explanation if it was rejected. Follow step #2 if approved by poll vote and training is completed.
PLEASE NOTE: TRAINING DOES NOT GO THROUGH GREEN SHIELD. CMAW PAYS FOR TRAINING FROM TRAINING FUND.
