Article 43

The Article 43 Certification program is a contractually established incentive payment program that has been bargained for the following ‘Legacy T’ titles:  Network Technical Specialist, IDC Technical Specialist and Operations Specialist.

Training for this program is coordinated by a joint/company union team and offered through The Alliance.  Individuals may take classes on company time, need of the business permitting, or may also attend on their own time.

Article 43 Impact Survey

In the fall of 2017, The Alliance conducted a survey designed to assess the effectiveness and the overall quality of the training provided under the negotiated “Article 43” agreement. The survey focused solely on training provided in the last two years. Input gathered will help ensure that The Alliance offers training and certification opportunities that reflect the needs, interests and priorities of the Article 43 eligible participants.
