Temple health workers win back tuition-reimbursement benefit

Philadelphia Inquirer, January 25, 2010
Tuition reimbursement was reinstated for the children of 1,500 unionized nurses and healthcare professionals at the Temple University Health System by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board. About 150 members, whose dependents had been using the benefit, should be reimbursed about $1 million, said Bill Cruice, chief negotiator for the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals. On March 9, Temple University unilaterally discontinued the benefit without bargaining, and the union filed an unfair-labor-practice complaint the following day, according to the labor board's decision.
