both.
I went thru it when I became a dislocated worker. the unions want the person to preferably stay in a type of job that tends to be unionized.
they tend to prefer the person go to tech college.
a union worker in a way pays for it while working. a portion of the union dues goes towards the college funds for dislocated workers.
