Change of Practice for Article 17 as of July 1, 2019 regarding Excused and Unexcused Absences

Change of Practice for Article 17 – Excused and Unexcused Absences as of 6-1-19.

The attached letter outlines the current contract language for excused/unexcused absences. The HFC Human Resource office has been excusing absences due to a past practice that was done in error by a former HR employee. This letter serves as notification (from HR) effective 7/1/2019, that they will be adhering to the current contract language. If you have questions feel free to reach out to the HR office, your area vice president (list attached), or to me.

Thank you,
Kimberly Kaier

Rouge Rescue at HFC needs Volunteers

Community Service Opportunity

This year’s Rouge Rescue at Henry Ford College event will be Saturday, May 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Volunteers should meet at around 8:45 a.m. at the Kingfisher Bluff on the west side of HFC’s main campus.

Each spring volunteers from across the region work together to improve the Rouge River in Southeast Michigan. Your help is needed to clean trash from the Rouge River, remove invasive plants that threaten biodiversity, and perform other activities to improve the Rouge’s water quality. Gather your friends and neighbors and join us for this fun and rewarding event!

Friends of the Rouge (FOTR) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1986 to raise awareness about the need to clean up the Rouge River. Its mission is to restore, protect, and enhance the Rouge River through stewardship, education, and collaboration.

Wear sturdy outdoor shoes and long pants; long sleeves recommended. Bring work gloves. Participation in this event counts toward community service requirements for HFC employees.

For questions or more information, call 734-927-4906 or visit
